"Twirling, Whirling Swirl!" is a Boohbah activity book, which was published by Scholastic on August 3, 2004. It contains black-and-white illustrations by Jeff Albrecht, as well as several show-specific activities and full-color cards on one section.


  • On the beginning pages, the user can draw the Boohball soaring in the air, as well as cloud patterns in the sky.
  • As the Boohball makes a spiral pattern as it "builds" the Boohzone, the text recommends that the user draw a spiral themselves and see how far they go.
  • On the opposite page, the text wonders "who's there" and suggests the user connect the dots to see, which turns out to be a Boohbah.
  • The Boohbahs fly out of their charger pods and soar around the Boohzone. This is most likely a coloring page, as users can color in all five Boohbahs and possibly some of the detail.
  • On one page, a pattern (with the Boohbahs stacking on top of each other) can be seen, and the text recommends that the user do their own pattern.
  • As the Boohbahs fly around, one page has one Boohbah hidden by a connect-the-dots, which the user can do to uncover that Boohbah (which they can color in).
  • The text introduces the Storypeople, and notes that one of them is missing (who happens to be Little Dog Fido). The user can then color in each Storyperson's clothing.
  • On the next two pages, the user can decorate and make a present for the Storypeople.
  • Several Storyworld-related activities follow, such as helping Grandpappa find a place to rest in and seeing what Brother and Sister have found inside a pearly shell.
  • On another Boohbah-related page, the text recommends the user to draw in the background as the Boohbahs do an end or celebratory dance.
  • On the next page, the user must match each object to its shadow.
  • On the opposite page, the user can help the Boohbahs go back into their pods.
  • On the final two pages, the user can draw a rainbow trailing behind the Boohball and on the opposite page, where the Boohball is traveling to.
  • The book also contains 30 cut-out cards, six each of each of the Boohbahs in three positions (making two duplicates of each design). When the user cuts them out, they can use them to make their own patterns (using extra cards on the edge of the page for reference), play a memory game, or make a train.


  • In this book, the Boohbahs' pods are depicted as five sparkly stand-alone fuzzy ladle-like seats as opposed to five fuzzy ladle-like beds connected to cells of energy. The platform they are situated on is also shown to be a fuzzy twinkling spot instead of a soft spinning base; this gives the idea that if the pods were to spin, they would circle around manually as opposed to being whirled around by the platform.
  • One of the card designs in this set shows the Boohbah pictured on it being shown from the top down, with its left (viewer's right) arm sticking out to the side. This book is one of a few that use this picture.
  • The Storypeople are pictured the same way they are in the storybooks, with Sister's pigtails curving and each character having beady eyes.
