Boo! Made You Jump! based on a script by David Ingham
I love Charlie and Lola, so I had to pick this up when I saw ourlibrary had it. It’s another sweet Halloweeny book for young kids. Charlie is always able to scare his little sister Lola, making her jump, but Lola can never ever make him jump. One night at a sleepover, Lola decides to tell a story.
“I’m going to tell you a really scary story about a terrible, terrible very old castle full of icky sticky spiders.”
Charlie does end up jumping at the end, which pleases Lola, even if it wasn’t her story that did it.
Really these siblings are just adorable and their friends a great too. The foru of them goof around, but are always kind and cute. And I love the illustration of the castle staircase, it just fits the mood perfectly.
If I had a younger child, this one would definitely be in the Halloween box. As it is, Amber (10) saw it sitting on the table and said she needed to read it even if she’s too old. That made me smile.

I borrowed my copy from the library and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.
