Title: Cute & Cuter
Janie is given the cutest thing she could imagine on her birthday, a dog named Sir Yips-a-lot. They do everything together. On her second birthday Janie is overwhelmed with cuteness again when she gets Lady Meow-meow, the worlds cutest kitty. Now Lady Meow-meow is doing all the things with Janie that Sir Yips-a-lot used to do, so he decides to institute Operation Cute Be Gone. But without Lady Meow-meow, nothing is the same - they are not a family (bet you didn’t see that one coming!) so Sir Yips-a-lot brings Lady Meow-meow back and the trio is inseparable. However the best part is what Janie gets on her next birthday!
Well it is so cute for one - event he cover says that it has “added cuteness!” But really I am an absolute fan of Michael Townsend. His graphic novels on Greek Myths and Where Presidents Come From are just genius. Surprisingly, while I have always thought the graphic style in his books for older kids were not as visually appealing, I did like the drawings in this picture book. I think it may have been the larger panels and the bright color choices.
Of course, while this book can be used when a new sibling is entering the house, it is also just wonderful for kids who like funny books and cute animals. The format is more in the style of a comic book.
Who’s the cutest pet of all? My bet is on the octopus … oops, forget I said that.
