Mustache Baby for Picture Book Friday

Happy Picture Book Friday!  This week I am profiling a book that focuses on a common problem for infants - excess facial hair.  Those baby mustaches are no laughing matter, well maybe in this case they are quite a laughing matter.  I mean really, who can resist an baby in a handlebar!

Title:       Mustache Baby

Author:   Bridget Heos

Target:    Preschool - Grade 2

What this book is about:
When Billy was born, he had a curious feature - can you guess?  Why yes, a mustache!  The big question was whether it would be a good-guy mustache or a bad-guy mustache.  It started off lawful and just, as Billy kept peace around the house.  However, it was not destined to stay that way.  Billy turned to a life of crime - cat burglar (literally) cereal burglar (again literally) - but his slow getaway car did him in.  Well we all have bad-mustache days now and again, but it is the new neighbor around the corner who provides Billy with the biggest surprise yet.

Why I love this book:
This book is a wonderful read aloud with it’s tongue and cheek humor.  Billy is perfectly drawn by Joy Ang who captures all the fun and comical aspects of this story.  Just watch Billy’s mustache change as he goes from good-guy to bad-guy!   And the ending is so surprising and unexpected that kids will love it every time (no I will not give it away!)

Who this book is for:
Great book for read alouds. however, the pictures are so well done that I think children will also enjoy this book one on one so they have time to see all the details in the illustrations.

Final thoughts:
This book is silly fun done well.
