Book Description:
When Precious is left home alone with a stomachache, she’s got nothing but a warning from Mama — "Don’t let nothing or nobody into this house" — to keep her company. You see, "nothing or nobody" could turn out to be something awful: the Boo Hag! The Boo Hag’s got a voice that rumbles like thunder and hair that shoots out like lightning. And she can disguise herself to look like anything. So when the Boo Hag comes calling, will Precious be clever enough to outwit even the trickiest trickster?
Here’s an oh-so-funny — and not-too-scary — story from Newbery Honor-winning author Patricia C. McKissack and Onawumi Jean Moss that’s paired with spirited, folksy illustrations by Kyrsten Brooker.
