Praise for Spooky Pookie (Little Pookie)
“It's Halloween time, and Pookie the pig is delighted…Boynton dresses Pookie in a series of cheerful costumes, including a dragon, a bunny, and even a caped superhero. Pookie eventually settles on the holiday classic, a ghost, by way of a bedsheet…Little readers will enjoy the notion of transforming themselves with their own Halloween costumes while reading this book, and a few parents may get some ideas as well. Boynton's clean, sharp illustrations are as good as ever.”

“Boynton’s Little Pookie is celebrating Halloween, and picking a costume is proving difficult. Lively rhymes list off the options Mom offers (“A clown would be funny./ A pumpkin is cute./ You would make a fine bunny/ in the white bunny suit”) as Little Pookie raids the costume chest. The final selection—a classic white-sheet ghost outfit—proves frightening enough to scare Mom, so it’s the clear winner. It’s a fun Halloween diversion that should easily please Little Pookie’s (and Boynton’s) many devotees.”
