Big PB Planet applause for Boo Hoo Bird by Jeremy Tankard (Scholastic Press, Scholastic Inc., 2009). Bird and Raccoon are playing catch, when Bird... doesn't. Big boo-hoos ensue from Bird. Raccoon tries to make Bird's big bonk all better with a kiss, but Bird just keeps crying. Will any of the other forest friends know how to make Bird stop boo-hooing? Tankard's illustrations--an imaginative blend of subdued floral backgrounds and cute and cartoony characters--perfectly compliment the text, and really "make" the surprise ending.
