    The “Johnny Boo” series by James Kochalka, reaching its ninth book with “Johnny Boo is King,” is on of the most reliably fun all-ages series on the shelves today. The books are made up of stories that are incredibly relatable to kids, even though the stories revolve around ghosts. Johnny Boo and Squiggle play like little kids, and their actions are easily recognizable to anyone who has kids, or is a kid themselves. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the new book, due out this week.

    Johnny Boo is wearing a crown on his head, so that means he’s the King! Squiggle wants to be king too, so he puts a rock on his head. After a brief argument, they decide to share their new flying castle and fly to the moon. Or are they just pretending? After a madcap encounter with the Ice Cream Monster, they finally get too sleepy to stay awake… making this silly story excellent for bedtime.
