    Boris and Bella is a spooky Halloween book by Carolyn Crimi along with illustrations by Gris Grimly about two monsters, Boris and Bella, who are extremely different from each other as Boris is the monster who loves to be tidy while Bella is the monster who loves to be messy When their friends ended up going to Harry Beastie s Halloween Party instead of theirs, Boris and Bella might discover that they may have something in common with each other If children are in the mood for the spirit of H Boris and Bella is a spooky Halloween book by Carolyn Crimi along with illustrations by Gris Grimly about two monsters, Boris and Bella, who are extremely different from each other as Boris is the monster who loves to be tidy while Bella is the monster who loves to be messy When their friends ended up going to Harry Beastie s Halloween Party instead of theirs, Boris and Bella might discover that they may have something in common with each other If children are in the mood for the spirit of Halloween and comedy, then Boris and Bella is just the right book for any child Well, well, well I have read many Halloween children s books in my lifetime, but I have never read any Halloween books quite like this before It s got humor, creepiness and friendship Carolyn Crimi has certainly done a magnificent job at writing this book, especially when she describes the personalities of each character The characters that really stood out the most for me were Boris and Bella themselves as they are the true stars of this book I love the way that Carolyn Crimi sets up the book as a creepy version of The Odd Couple as Boris is the tidy monster while Bella is the messy monster and you know that these two aspects are sort of explosive when they combine , which brings out the hilarity of this story as Boris and Bella are always at odd ends with each other Gris Grimly s illustrations are literally something to die for as they are somewhat creepy as you can see all manner of monsters being displayed in this book such as skeletons, vampires, and werewolves The illustrations give off a sort Nightmare Before Christmas feel as it is filled with monsters and the illustrations look a little dark The images that truly stood out for me were the images of Boris and Bella themselves Boris is shown to be dressed in a proper grey tuxedo along with bat wings on his back, while Bella is dressed in a long and sloppy looking dress along with green hair that has flies swarming all over it, making the two look different from each other.Parents should know that there might be some monsters in this book that might scare smaller children such as the skeletons and the werewolves However, the images in this book are not as scary as you would find in Edward Gorey s works since it shows the monsters just dancing around having a good time.Overall, Boris and Bella is a brilliant Halloween book for children who love comedy and monsters and I am definitely sure that this book will remain of the most all time Halloween classics for children that was ever created For recommendations, I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since smaller children might get a tad bit scared at some of the monster images in this book.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    I wasn t expecting much from this book Even though one Goodreads friend whose taste I trust had liked this a lot, the only reason I read it is that it s one of 6 picture books being read for this month s Picture Books Club October theme is Autumn Halloween at the Children s Books group I have no interest in Bela Lugosi or Boris Karloff or their films, or almost any horror films, and I expected this book to haveto do with these men I was glad the names werea homage, but that the I wasn t expecting much from this book Even though one Goodreads friend whose taste I trust had liked this a lot, the only reason I read it is that it s one of 6 picture books being read for this month s Picture Books Club October theme is Autumn Halloween at the Children s Books group I have no interest in Bela Lugosi or Boris Karloff or their films, or almost any horror films, and I expected this book to haveto do with these men I was glad the names werea homage, but that the story was entirely something else.My expectations were wildly exceeded This book is absolutely hilarious The story is very amusing and there are so many funny touches, including playing with words, etc So, the story is a true comedy, but it s also sweet It s a lot of fun.The illustrations are fabulous, and often also very funny They re really wonderful to view, and they complement the story perfectly I m not certain that young children will get all the jokes but people of all ages can enjoy this book at different levels Kids and adults who are particularly messy or neat will especially appreciate this story.Even the inside front cover synopsis and the author and illustrator s bios on the inside back cover are highly entertaining.This is a delightful book and it s perfect for reading aloud I m so grateful to the Children s Books group because I probably wouldn t have read this if it hadn t been one of the book club s books

    This is a perfectly charming story about neighbors Bella Lagrossi and Boris Kleanitoff As their delightfully suitable names imply, Bella loves to be messy and Boris likes things neat and tidy Living in such close proximity, they are bound to bump into one another now and again, and their respective housekeeping habits soon create a rift With Halloween on the horizon, each wants to throw the best Halloween party ever but while they are so caught up in themselves, they don t realize that th This is a perfectly charming story about neighbors Bella Lagrossi and Boris Kleanitoff As their delightfully suitable names imply, Bella loves to be messy and Boris likes things neat and tidy Living in such close proximity, they are bound to bump into one another now and again, and their respective housekeeping habits soon create a rift With Halloween on the horizon, each wants to throw the best Halloween party ever but while they are so caught up in themselves, they don t realize that their ghoulish townsfolk are all going to ANOTHER Halloween party When Boris and Bella decide to crash that party, they begin to learn a thing or two about one another and their own behavior The illustrations give such a fabulous old fashioned monster movie feel as some of my friends have noted and while a few were a tad on the creepy side for my usual taste, they are so well done and contribute so much to the story that I kind of have to love them The text is delightful I love all the character names and I love the resolution of the story and showing how we can learn from one another and that even if we think we are completely set in our ways, we can always appreciate something different and should never be too lofty All in all, an outstanding choice for Halloween or even for Valentine s Day if you d like a break from the traditional pink hearts and cupids and lace

    Opposites clash, and then attract, in this humorously monstrous picture book, which follows neighbors Bella Lagrossi and Boris Kleanitoff who, as their names suggest, are disgustingly messy and obsessively neat as they both attempt to throw a Halloween party without inviting the other But when all the residents of Booville elect to attend Henry Beastie s party instead, the two rivals reluctantly find themselves going along, and discovering that they have a few things in common, after all Opposites clash, and then attract, in this humorously monstrous picture book, which follows neighbors Bella Lagrossi and Boris Kleanitoff who, as their names suggest, are disgustingly messy and obsessively neat as they both attempt to throw a Halloween party without inviting the other But when all the residents of Booville elect to attend Henry Beastie s party instead, the two rivals reluctantly find themselves going along, and discovering that they have a few things in common, after allRecommended by a friend thanks, Chandra , and chosen as one of six selections for the Picture Book Club to which I belong, Boris and Bella is one of those unexpectedly entertaining titles I might never have picked up, were it not for the prompting of others I m glad I did, as I found myself chuckling, while reading it, recognizing some of the classic horror film tributes, and appreciating the suitably nasty way in which Boris and Bella bond they both feel superior to the other partyers at Henry Beastie s With such a monstrously fun narrative, and thrillingly creepy watercolor and ink illustrations by Gris Grimly, it has everything needed for the ideal Halloween title

    This story has some of the best classic movie monsters featured in it and is a wonderful tribute to horror movie masters Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff The illustrations are reminiscent of the Addams Family or even something from a Tim Burton film A very funny story that highlights the differences in being to neat versus to messy A story that shows opposites can attract and has some very creepy play on words.
