Petey and Pru and the Hullabaloo
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt / Thomas Allen & Son
age 5-8
By author: Ammi-Joan Paquette, Illustrated by: Joy Ang
40 pages

 Synopsis from House of Thomas Allen & Son:

Petey is enjoying a peaceful afternoon of gardening when his good friend Pru starts to cause trouble. Petey reacts in turn, and before long, things have escalated from a scuffle to a tussle to a true hullabaloo!

Serendipitous! Have you ever had a word that you love to say? There are so many great words in the English language yet we often don’t expose our kids to them. Petey and Pru and the Hullabalo is a fun story about two kids, tranquil Petey and tricksy Pru. Kids will love the story but they’ll enjoy the language more, like cacophony and skedaddle.

The story and images help illustrate the meaning of the words that might be new to kids but the inside cover provides easy definitions too. Petey and Pru and the Hullabalo is a fun read out loud book.

You can find a copy of Petey and Pru and the Hullabaloo at your local bookstore or at Thomas Allen & Son. Visit our Kid’s Books section for other great book recommendations.
