CLICK, CLACK, BOO! is a gentle, Halloween-themed story with some of the same appealing characters from Click, Clack, Moo. But here the animals are not in revolt against Farmer Brown. They just want to have a party and include him in the fun!

The simple story is enhanced by the repetition of creepy sounds that seem at first to be scary but ultimately prove to be harmless, such as the "tap, tap, tapping" on a door and window, the "creak, creak, creaking" on the old boards of the front porch, and the "crunch, crunch, crunching" of footsteps on autumn leaves. The friendly, happy ending should send young bedtime readers to sleep with a smile.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
