Welcome to the magical Hotel of Hoo.
Where I’ll be your host, Mr Nicholas Noo.
I’m sure you’ll be happy in room number 1.
You’ll be my first guests; before you, I had none.
Please explore my hotel, but whatever you do,
Don’t ever look behind door 32.
Through door number 2 are the grumpy old clowns.
I don’t think they’re funny,
but they help clean the grounds.
Through door number 3 are the fidgety knights.
They itch and they scratch,
but they fix all the lights.
Through door number 4 is the room where we eat,
Whenever you’re hungry, come in, take a seat.
But just a reminder, when done with your stew,
Don’t ever look behind door 32.
Illustrated by Lenny Wen.

Quotes from Reviews:
“B.C.R. Fegan combines the whimsical spirit of a Dr. Seuss book with the spine-tingling mystery of a haunted house in his picture book Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32.” – BlueInk (Starred Review)
“Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 is both enjoyable and educational. With thirty-one doors to explore, the book is sure to entertain young children while also reinforcing early counting skills.” – Foreword Clarion Reviews
“What is behind door 32? The answer isn’t what readers will expect, and the finale of the charmingly rhymed book has a pleasing twist designed to make kids chuckle with relief that nothing really terrible is lurking.” – Kirkus Reviews
“The ending is excellent and unexpected. It is a good bedtime storybook for parents to read out at night and can be used for read aloud and story telling sessions in classrooms and school libraries.” – Readers’ Favorite
A simple and fun story, that counts from 1-32
as you visit all the rooms in the Hotel of Hoo.
Along with two young guests we peek behind each door…
There are wonderful characters; goblins, ghosts, fairies and more.
The rhyming text is fun to read out loud, and for the most part it’s a fairly easy read although there are some challenging words for younger readers.
The book is filled, from cover to cover, with delightful illustrations!
An enjoyable and entertaining book.
