Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—Based on the idiosyncratic Uglydoll collectibles the author and illustrator created, this is the story of a greedy, cookie-obsessed little blue monster. When Babo purchases an oversize cookie from the new Giant Cookie Bakery in Uglytown, he refuses to share it with his friends. He imagines all of the things he will do with it—go to school, read bedtime stories, trick-or-treat, see a movie, run races, and play video games. But when Uglydog tries to take a bite out of the cookie, Babo loosens his grip and his treasure tumbles down Uglytown Peak, rolls into Uglyview Park, and crashes into the Ugly Memorial. Looking at the hundreds of broken pieces, Babo realizes that the best thing to do now is share it with his friends. "And he was happier sharing his cookie than he ever would have been eating it alone." While the simple, didactic story line isn't particularly original or inspiring, fans of the dolls, as well as those who appreciate wacky, offbeat characters, will enjoy seeing how these bizarre little creatures play out on the pages.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
