"BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!" depicts a brave young boy who comforts his friends during a thunderstorm. Swenson begins, "One stormy night, I jumped into bed. Safe with a book and my bear named Fred" and, from there, introduces a cast of unlikely friends that ultimately band together to overcome the scary weather. The book handles fear with a combination of first person matter-of-fact narration, wit, energy, and rhythmic language. As a bonus, Swenson includes an engaging counting element as the snug bed grows more crowded page after page. With soft colours and a touch of humour, the charming illustrations by David Walker offer anticipation and reassurance throughout the story.
This narrator offers young children a strong role model as he remains calm and welcoming in the face of fear. An excellent illustration of the fact that we can not choose our feelings but we can control our reactions.
