The biggest thing to happen to Skary, Indiana, is renowned horror novelist Wolfe Boone, or Boo as the locals fondly call him. For the past 16 years, the reclusive writer has been the town's greatest attraction, having unintentionally turned the once struggling Skary into a thriving tourist trap for the dark side.

But when a newly reformed Wolfe suddenly quits the genre and subsequently starts to pursue Skary's favorite girl-next-door, Ainsley Parker, the little town becomes truly horrified. Soon, a scheme is plotted to put the fright back into Skary and get their most famous resident out of love and back into the thrill business.

Filled with humor, small town charm, and a gentle message of enduring faith, BOO shows how even the most colorful group of busybodies and hypocrites can become a community changed forever by God. Download and start listening now!

    " This book makes me think of what it would be like to live life outloud. It was really good and I wish I'd had jury duty longer so I could have finished it more quickly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/31/2014

    " Light, fun read for October. I enjoyed that it was Christian fiction that didn't drag on the end but he got saved in the beginning and the book was about love and small town life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glenda | 1/31/2014

    " Love this series..Funny. I had laugh out loud moments that disturbed my sleeping husband. Yes, I read in bed. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa | 1/18/2014

    " one of the dullest books i have ever read. awful in its predictability i could have given you a play by play without even reading it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dexter/Persy | 1/10/2014

    " I rarely enjoy Christian fiction, but Rene Gutteridge is amazing at it. I also rarely enjoy romances, but Miss Gutteridge is amazing at that too. I love the characters, love the plot, and love the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christy | 1/4/2014

    " I love the whole Boo series but this one is my favorite of them all. It's been some time since I've read them, so I need to again! Just trust me when I say, you will be cracking up while reading this. I laughed so much I cried! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 12/21/2013

    " I normally don't read Christian fiction but I really liked this book. I'm excited to start the next one! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 12/8/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peggy Crawford | 11/2/2013

    " A Christian romance. It was just okay, but I'm not a big romance reader. I picked it up because I liked the cover. A co-worker liked it a lot. Didn't like it well enough to read the next book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 10/16/2013

    " Talk about a quirky cast of characters and some find out how to change while others are stuck on neutral. What I enjoyed most about this (aside from that last twist) was how a horror novelist is shown to have more depth in his being than everyone perceived at all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 9/11/2013

    " I loved this book! It was adorable and the characters were so creative! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erin | 2/5/2013

    " Um, although I appreciate my mom's friend sending me this book, and it did pass the time. It was just not for me. This may have been my first and last foray into Christian fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 1/17/2013

    " It's hard to find a book that you are luaghing out loud when your reading it but this was one of them! just the small town feel of everyone in your business was just great and left me turning the pages wondering what else could posibly go wrong! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 1/15/2013

    " This was a fun book to read. Many times, I just picked it up while waiting in line, or at a light, Yes I know, but I just waned to see what else would happen. It is sort of like a sitcom. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Collin | 12/19/2012

    " First read date: September 18th, 2009 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 11/17/2012

    " This was a fun book about a typical small town, where everyone knows everything about everyone. Throw in an old biddy as the ring leader and you have the setting for BOO! It was a fun book to read and I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libby | 9/10/2012

    " I normally would never have picked this up as I am not fond of supernatural, Halloweeny stuff. But a friend told me she loved it and so I read it. It was wonderful! I loved the characters who seemed so real to me. This one is a keeper as are the two others in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie | 8/14/2012

    " This is a good story but it's a little on the light and fluffy side. Sometimes we need that. If you do, then I think you'll enjoy this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene | 4/22/2012

    " I loved this book, it has so many twist and turns not to mention good christen values. Its a quick read and has two more books in the series. Boo Who and Boo Hiss. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barb | 6/12/2011

    " Cute story, not what I was expecting for a 'skary' story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ed | 4/20/2011

    " A moving narrative that highlights the circle of life in understandable, free-market terms while placing a sunnier patina on the darker side of the meat and poultry industry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tdavis | 3/2/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sadie | 1/27/2011

    " Clearly my favorite author, Sandra's pictures of animals make it so easy for Mom and Dad to teach me animal sounds. Her books are goofy and fun, and have the power to completely distract me from anything unpleasant. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alice & Andrew | 1/14/2011

    " This is one of our very, very favorites, and is one of two books that helped us learn so many animal noises. It was one of the first books we read interactively with Mommy, chiming in with all of the animal noises. The rhymes are so catchy; Mommy likes them as much as we do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Little John | 9/7/2010

    " Another library book.

    This was a fun story with lots of neat sounds. I really liked the pictures of the cow and sheep! Om Nom said all the animals noises again at the end, and I got to make my own noise, too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 JoAnn | 4/13/2010

    " I love, love, love doing the animal sounds as I read this poem and it effectively mesmerized my children. I read it to my daughter about 75 times once while stuck in a horrible traffic jam and she enjoyed it every time. My youngest is 11 and I still know this by heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie | 4/23/2009

    " LOVE Sandra Boynton! She is a master of rhythm and rhyme! Darling illustrations and clever humor! Another one in my "board book" collection! The children love her too! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/5/2009

    " Maddie's favorite book, we have it memorized!! We could read this 20 times a day and she would still love it, she loves to hear the rhyme and loves when we emphasize the sounds of the barn animals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 8/8/2008

    " A cow says moo, a sheep says baa, three singing pigs say la la la... oh god I think I can recite this book from memory. It is cute though for a toddler and not so mind numbing as books for this age tend to be, "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 6/12/2008

    " This book has cute illustrations and introduces kids to animals and the sounds that they make.
    Sturdy and fun. "
