Boo! Haiku

illus. by Bob Shea. 24p. Abrams Appleseed. Aug. 2016. Tr $12.95. ISBN 9781419721182.
PreS—A Halloween-themed follow-up to Guess Who Haiku. This picture book is just as clever as the first collection and just as much fun. Caswell's various haiku provide enough clues ("broom across the moon," coupled with Shea's simple and graphic black hat) that preschoolers will be able to guess the answers ("Boo! It's a witch!") before they turn the page. Even the endpapers have graphic Halloween appeal.
VERDICT This interactive title would be great to use in seasonal programs or for classroom writing prompts. Recommended for purchase.
