Mustache Baby (Board Book)

by Bridget Heos

Mustache Baby (Board Book) Synopsis

When Baby Billy is born with a mustache, his family takes it in stride. They are reassured when he nobly saves the day in imaginary-play sessions as a cowboy or cop and his mustache looks good-guy great. But as time passes, their worst fears are confirmed when little Billy's mustache starts to curl up at the ends in a suspiciously villainous fashion. Sure enough, Billy's disreputable mustache led him into a life of dreadful crime.

Mustache Baby (Board Book) Press Reviews

Occasional badness has never been so good. --Kirkus The book's oddball sense of humor is unflagging. --Publishers Weekly A mustached baby will surely make audiences howl during read-alouds. --Booklist Online You never know what you'll get in the delivery room, and something isn't quite right with this new baby. . . . Heos's offbeat tale muses on the possibilities, playing off parental hope and panicky nightmares. --New York Times Book Review [This] book bristles with appealing humor. --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Quirky, silly fun. --School Library Journal
