The Lovereading4Kids comment

Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month, August 2015 Brilliantly conceived, this hugely attractive picture book is also a sophisticated ‘chose your own adventure’. Floyd wants to go exploring down the valley behind the house where he lives. But his mum and his sister Ruby tell him that if he does he will SO scared that he ‘MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO GO TO SLEEP EVER AGAIN’. From that moment on, readers have to make a number of choices about just how brave they are! Whatever choice you make there is lots of excitement along the way in this witty adventure that makes reading words and pictures equally important. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Where the Bugaboo Lives by Sean Taylor

From the author of Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, comes a wonderfully interactive, which-way adventure story which follows Floyd and his sister into the dark, shadowy valley behind their house a valley full of all kinds of creepy, freaky, weaselly creatures and the scariest of them all THE BUGABOO! In this hilarious, ghoulish story, you can choose Floyd and Ruby s path (and which monster they meet next!) at the end of each page.
