Say Boo to the Animals
By Ian Whybrow
Illustrated by Tim Warnes
A fearless little rabbit goes for a walk through the forest shouting ʻBOO!ʼ to all the scary animals in its path. But which fearsome creature frightens everyone away at the end…?
This book is for very young children, so there was a lot of debate as to how scary the animals should be (which have a fuzzy, flocked finish by the way). Donʼt worry though - thereʼs no chance of it leading to nightmares, just a lot of shouting "BOO!"
I remember having a great time listening to Jamiroquai whilst painting the tiger spread - the rabbit even looks like itʼs dancing
