Add this book under your tree!!


Readers have come to love the eccentric characters from Skary , Indiana , in Rene Gutteridge’s popular Boo! series. Now, in Boo, Humbug! they’re back – and they’re stirring up a large amount of holiday havoc!

It’s Christmastime in Skary, and the town is planning an original production of A Christmas Carol with a horror spin. As showtime approaches, things go very awry for director Lois Stepaphanopolis. She panics when she discovers that her marketing director loathes Christmas and that the audience has been promised not Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but the real Christmas story. Can the actors pull off the improv of all improvs and convince their community to embrace the true meaning of the Christmas season?

Boo, Humbug! offers readers a delightful glimpse into small town, community life with heartwarming humor and winsome characters. And in the end, the true meaning of Christmas shines out bright and clear, in a decidedly un-Skary way.

My review:

When I first saw that Boo, Humbug! was coming out, I screamed. Literally. Rene's BOO series are one of my favorite series of all time. Not only is Rene a talented author, she's hilarious! Rene brings romantic comedy to an entirely new level of fun. The townsmembers of Skary will live in your heart long after you close the book. They're fresh, real, vibrant...I feel honored to have been a short part of their lives! =)

Boo, Humbug!
was charmingly witty and the perfect wrap-up to a delightful series. I read this book in one evening while curled up on the couch with a blanket, a Diet Coke, and a whole warm case of Christmas fuzzies. If you haven't met Wolfe, Ainsley, Melb, Oliver, Marty, and the whole gang - what in Skary are you waiting for??? =)

Even better - take it a step further, and grace someone's Christmas tree with a whole pile of BOO books...Boo, Boo Who, Boo Hiss, and now, finally - Boo, Humbug!

I have to limit it to one favorite tradition? There's cranberry bread and almond cookies, of course--fab recipes from my m-i-l... Picking out the Christmas tree... My kids in the church Christmas program. I love seeing them celebrate Jesus' birthday!

This Christmas we are going on a train called the North Pole Express. I've wanted to go for a few years, so I'm really excited.

I've wanted to read the Boo series. It looks like a refreshing change of pace from most Inspie fiction.

I love the Boo books! Haven't gotten a hold of this one yet, though.

My favorite Christmas tradition is going to my grandma's on Christmas Eve - the lights on the trip, the wonderful food, the gifts, seeing relatives I haven't seen all year . . . and knowing that Christmas is finally here!
