Synopsis

Calm Down Boris! by Stella Gurney

Meet Boris - he's a very loving little monster! Orange, hairy and over-enthusiastic, Boris means well, but always ends up getting carried away and spoiling things. In Calm Down, Boris! , the reader is asked to help Boris brush his hair ready for his trip to the park - and gets smothered in grateful kisses. The same happens when we feed him, and when he gets to the park none of the other little monsters want to play with him because he's so loud and boisterous. But when a big scary dog jumps over the fence, Boris saves the day by scaring him away with his big, friendly kisses!

Reviews

Boris is a very affectionate monster. He likes nothing better than showering everyone with kisses and, though endearing, it can also be very ticklish. Boris loves everyone and can't help showing it. He kisses you for checking his fur for bugs, he kisses you for feeding him, he kisses you for stroking him - he kisses you for just about everything, in fact. Waterstones Part book, part hand puppet, this wacky book will keep you and your child giggling for hours. It's a great way of interacting through books. Waterstone's Guide
