And Two Boys Booed - Judith Viorst, Sophie Blackall

On the day of the class talent show a boy is excited to perform. He’s practiced and practiced, so he isn’t the least bit nervous. The children before him juggle balls, dance, and do handstands with ease. As the line shortens, the boy becomes more alarmed, gradually curling into a ball, until only his cowlick is visible over the neck of his sweater. When he finally stands up in front of his classmates he gets all jumbled up, “reading [his] toes” and “dancing [his] hands,” before managing to sing his song. In And Two Boys Booed (Farrar Straus Giroux, $16.99) veteran author Judith Viorst creates another lovable character, while illustrator Sophie Blackall perfectly captures the stage fright the boy feels. With clever lift-the-flaps, readers will laugh, cheer, and be encouraged by the boy’s ultimate success.  Ages 4-8. KLG
