Book Description

1 July 2006
Meet Boris - he's a very loving little monster! Orange, hairy and over-enthusiastic, Boris means well, but always ends up getting carried away and spoiling things. In "Calm Down, Boris!", the reader is asked to help Boris brush his hair ready for his trip to the park - and gets smothered in grateful kisses. The same happens when we feed him, and when he gets to the park none of the other little monsters want to play with him because he's so loud and boisterous. But when a big scary dog jumps over the fence, Boris saves the day by scaring him away with his big, friendly kisses!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very tickly kisses! 12 Dec 2006
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my niece's 1st birthday and it was a MASSIVE hit with her and all her other 1 year old friends. They just loved watching Boris and receiving kisses from Boris - they were so tickly - they all giggled like mad. Would really recommend this book for any young child.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last - a book I never tire of reading! 15 April 2007
Format:Hardcover
Calm Down Boris is the best children's book I have ever come across. I really was beginning to climb the walls reading the same old stuff night in, night out...but then Boris came along. The book is interactive and both the reader and the child can delight in Boris' cheeky charm (and it brings out the actress in me, calling on me to do my best monster voice). My 20 month old girl thinks he's real and loves to talk to Boris before we read him. 100% recommended by us!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant in all but one detail 29 Mar 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic idea. I love the fact that you can use the puppet on every page and look forward to buying the others in this series. Just one issue with it, which is that it refers to a "big scary dog", and I don't agree with teaching children that dogs are scary!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea and Great Fun! 22 Jun 2008
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my six month old and she giggles whenever Boris comes to kiss her! The book is great for creating interaction and we never seem to tire of it, although i'm sometimes unsure of who enjoys it the most, my daughter or her dad!
