Johnny Boo - And The Mean Little Boy

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


"Perfect for beginning readers." -- Publishers Weekly
"Kochalka's command of the comic form is sublime and adorable. Kids will love Johnny Boo." -- Harry Bliss, illustrator of Diary of a Worm
"Johnny Boo is sweet without being sugary and comfortably familiar yet fresh on every page. All in all, Kochalka's light touch has created the quintessential small gem." -- Peter Gutiérrez, School Library Journal
James Kochalka's beloved all-ages series continues with another goofy romp! When Johnny Boo announces a play date with his quiet new friend Rocky the Rock, trusty sidekick Squiggle is left to find a new friend of his own. How about this nice fellow named the Mean Little Boy? He sure is fond of his butterfly net, and he's got a great game to play with Squiggle… But wait a minute, maybe the Mean Little Boy isn’t actually so nice! It's up to Johnny Boo and Squiggle to find a way out of this pickle. The fourth Johnny Boo book is packed with laughs and charm, with just the gentlest touch of potty humor.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 01, 2010 – Johnny Boo is a happy little ghost, and his sidekick friend, Squiggle, returns in his fourth adventure. Squiggle just wants to spend the day playing with him. However, Johnny Boo insists he's playing with another friend (that he makes up), to avoid spending the day with Squiggle. From this simple setup, lessons on friendship and truth telling are learned, as Boo and Squiggle encounter a new friend who isn't so friendly. Kochalka's clearly placed panels, simple illustrations with bright bold colors, and large speech balloons are packaged nicely into short and readable chapters, perfect for beginning readers. The story is made complete with a photo of Kochalka's drawing hand at the end of the book, which many readers will find amusing. Ages 6 10.
