Children's Chapter Book Review: Dr Boogaloo And The Girl Who Lost Her Laughter by Lisa Nicol




If you're after a chapter book for middle readers, then look no further than this fantastic read!
Dr Boogaloo isn't your standard GP. 
Instead of prescribing medication to his patients, he treats them with what he believes to be the most powerful form of medicine... MUSIC!
One day, a woman brings her young daughter, a girl named Blue, to Dr Boogaloo's clinic.
Blue has lost her ability to laugh. In fact, it has been over 700 days since she last laughed. 
Will Dr Boogaloo be able to cure her, or is Blue doomed to never laugh again?

I adored this book. Blue is an adorable girl who is kind and considerate to others. As we learn about her home life, we soon realise just how easy it is for Blue to have lost her laughter.
Dr Boogaloo and his wife, Bessie, are both wonderful characters and will stop at nothing to help Blue. It is a whimsical and enchanting tale that both young and older readers will enjoy.
And the book cover is so pretty too!

Dr Boogaloo And The Girl Who Lost Her Laughter is out this  month through Penguin Random House Australia, and has an RRP of $19.99
