A sweet addition to Halloween books. It's nice to add some newer books to the holiday collection. A preschool family member I read it to gave her seal of approval.

This was adorable! We read this right at the beginning of Halloween and it was the perfect book to help begin the spooky holiday. While my kids are a bit older for this book, my youngest still had fun reading along to this. The story was really fun and easy to follow along, the pictures went along well and were adorable, and we just had a lot of fun reading this. I think this was a great book for young and beginning readers and I would definitely recommend it to others.

I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a copy.

This is a great addition to your Halloween reading rotation in your family library. It is a story set in Monster Town. The Boo Crew is cute and is a perfect interactive story for little ones and early readers. They need your help to fix all the messes on Halloween night. Maybe it is helping fix a broken pumpkin with a tap of the page. You helped! A haunted house might need to be redone and you need to make moves to help fix it. This is a cute book with great characters. It is a creative book that helps bring fun to reading this adorable story. It is an adventure rolled into you bringing some action. You will hear laughs and see smiles when reading this one.

This was a fun Halloween book in the vein of Press Here. Things are happening on Halloween night that are messing with the party. But the Boo Crew is here to help, with a little assistance from the readers, the party will be put to right, and every one can have a fright.

Me and my children enjoyed this story with all the characters within. It about three friends that are going round town looking for mess that happened. While they are doing this it is Halloween night and there are a lot of things happening.

This was a fun story to read. It had action and adventure throughout. It had fun thing to do in the story. My children had fun with this book. We had laughs and giggles throughout read it.

I received a complimentary copy via Netgalley. This is my honest unbiased opinions.

I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are my own opinions.

I really wanted to dislike this book because the repetition of The Boo Crew drove me a bit bonkers. I, however, greatly enjoyed helping the Boo Crew clean the town for the ball. I think children will have a blast helping the Boo Crew with all their tasks as well.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this book!

It's Halloween, and nothing is going right. It's a good thing we have the Boo Crew to help us out!

This title is perfect for even the littlest of monsters this Halloween season. It's very interactive, making it excellent for one-on-one stories. It could also work well for larger story time groups, if you took the time to allow every listener to help out with the tasks. I absolutely loved the illustrations; they're adorable, and there's so much detail that adds to the story! There is a rhyming scheme, but it doesn't happen throughout the entire story, and at times it feels forced. Additionally, the repetition of "The Boo Crew" got to be a bit much towards the end. Overall, this was a super cute Halloween story that will appeal to many families who celebrate the holiday.

Spooky, silly fun — this picture book includes the kiddos in the action, with an extremely interactive story that asks for turning, pushing, clapping, and more. Repetition is helpful but there was one too many “boo crew”s in this book for me to want to read it regularly. Otherwise, a great Halloween addition!

We have found a fun adventure just in time for Halloween. The Boo Crew Needs You! Is a story about a skeleton, a ghost and a vampire who are out to fix all the things going wrong for Halloween, and they want your help to do it. This was a wonderful interactive book that my little ones adore already. Following along with the story your child and you can tap the pumpkins, turn the book to help and take a breath for monsters sake. It is full of Halloween fun that everyone will love. The illustrations are simply adorable and your little one will adore them as much as I do. They are as creative as the story full of fun details. This book is great to share for Halloween or even any time of the year. It’s also perfect to share in an Early Childhood classroom and get everyone engaged in the story. You will all love this little adventure.

The Boo Crew Needs You by Vicky Fang. The Boo crew is a very cute book about Halloween when I go shopping I will find the book form. The Kindle version is nice as a sample but I cannot wait to find the book version so you can actually do the activities. I would buy it for my three year old granddaughter who loves books especially ones you interact with.

The Boo Crew Needs You is an adorable interactive Halloween book full of gorgeous full color illustrations. Each little prompt is told in rhyme (which makes ANY read out loud book amazing in my opinion!) Thank you to Netgalley and Vicky Fang for an advanced readers copy of The Boo Crew Needs You in exchange for an honest review.

So cute! I love Halloween and it’s about time to bring out the fall books here. The beat and rhyme kept my daughter interested. The illustrations were adorable.

Super cute illustrations and a fun read for the Halloween season. Love the fact that it is interactive for the kids, which helps keep their attention while reading and not get side track.
If you read it to a group of kids, recommend reading the page with the action then give them all time to do it before moving on. They'll think it's fun being able to interact too. It's fun joining in on the fun when reading it, as well

Sometimes there is rhyming to it and others it doesn't.

What happens when everything goes awry, the Boo Crew is called and saves the day! The illustrations are done in a cute style that’s truly spooky cute. What I love the most though about this book is the interactive aspect. This makes a great read for one on one, and if executed correctly, for storytimes with a larger group. Things such as shake the book, blow, flip the switch, etc exist in this book and help to make you a part of the Boo Crew to help save the day. Indeed, a precious fun read that I cannot wait to read with my little one!

Cute illustrations! I didn’t love the composition…there’s a rhyming scheme, but it’s not exactly well-executed. Children would probably still enjoy it as it’s very interactive…blowing on pages, tapping illustrations, shaking the book, etc. Fun!

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review this eARC!
