Mister Boo!

By Joyce Dunbar
Illustrated by Petr Horacek

A lively tale about a fun-loving cat learning to accept change, imaginatively illustrated by the award-winning Petr Horácek.

Mischievous Mister Boo loves to give everyone he meets a surprise. He shocks the baby birds, the baby rabbits and the baby owls. BOO! But one day he wakes up without his usual energy and no one seems to take any notice of him. Will Mister Boo learn to accept change and find joy again? A buoyant second collaboration between the acclaimed writer Joyce Dunbar and world-renowned illustrator Petr Horácek.

  • An exuberant picture book that is sure to bring joy to its reader Mister Boo is a character to fall in love with!
  • "Dunbar has a deceptively simple style that speaks straight to the hearts of four to six year olds." The Guardian
  • "Petr Horácek is one funny guy, as well as a natural-born teacher and a whizz with a paintbrush. Put him down as the thinking tot’s Eric Carle." Washington Post
