I was lucky enough to find this book for free via BookBub!

Backyard Hullabaloo is a fun and spunky picture book by Junia Wonders and Divin Meir!

What I liked about this book was that there was a little more reading content in it. The picture books I have been picking up lately had barely a sentence per page, but this book had multiple sentences and even paragraphs per page! Having a little more content made this book a little more fun and inventive when I was reading it.

We follow Mr. Bagoo, who o
Delightful fun with great words like golly and hullaballoo and nincompoop and pestilence! :)

Check out the review at Bark and Bagoo: Backyard Hullabaloo > Review

This book should be read with changing voice and lots of action. Both parents and children will have so much fun with this one.

I am already a fan of Junia Wonders. She really does wonders with her books. This book is equally colorful and beautifully Illustrated. But this one has got more action than Boy and the Very Lost Pony.

Mr. Barks and Mr. Bagoo are neighbors. Mr. Bagoo is a happy go lucky guy whereas Mr. Barks is an ex-m

Enjoyed it!

My granddaughter's favorite part was the worms, slugs and ducks. It was a good story for us to read together.

Simple book

Simple story to learn good lesson for kids. I've enjoyed similar stories in my childhood. I love the same now. This story reminded me of those days.

A beautifully crafted tale of revelry between neighbors, the consequences and the choices to make things right. Charming, with colorful illustrations and interesting characters. Young readers between will truly be delighted. Educators, Librarians, parents, and grandparents, pick up your copy soon, you will be glad you did. Well done!

Great book! My grandchildren loved it. We had the best time reading it over and over. There are wonderfully funny words through out that made us all laugh. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to entertain themselves and children. I won Bark and Bagoo: Backyard Hullabaloo in a Goodreads giveaway and I want to thank them for introducing me to the great Junia Wonders.

No Lesson Learned

In children’s picture books, if you have a grumpy, hateful character, I always look forward to the lesson that redeem this ornery character. However, while Mr. Bark realized that Mr. Bagoo made a profit on his plan to harm his neighbor, he didn’t stop to think that I am only hurting myself. Mr. Bark never reconciles with his neighbor; Mr. Bagoo always is apologetic for what he cannot control, but Mr. Bark is too hateful to make peace with his neighbor. He is too demanding to rea

Too wordy and yet no point

There were too many words on each page, too much going on to capture my kiddos' attention. And yet, there was no lesson to be learned, no point to be made. What a worthless story!

Cute story!

This was a cute story to read with some advanced language to teach my toddler and great illustrations! Definitely recommend.

I didn't like it. Mean characters and hard to follow with too many details for children.

There are two things in this world that I love doing the most: writing and reading children's stories.

When I'm not doing either of these, you might catch me whispering to dragonflies, chasing rolling pumpkins, traveling the world with a giant wheel of cheese, or simply having a cup of tea and cake with a caterpillar, a clever little rat, a camel, a lonely pony, a couple of riotous retired neighbor
