Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 7 Up—King examines "cute" in American culture-from baby animals to shiny objects and all manner of adorable things in between. The text is not only a list of what fits into this category, but also a well-researched look at what people find so appealing and why. While Kalis's blue-line drawings are adequate, photographs would have really upped the cuteness factor in the overall book design. Filled with fun facts and interesting tidbits, this is a title that tweens and teens are sure to flip through again and again. It's just the kind of book girlie-girls will flock to in their libraries and media centers—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

Meet the Author

Bart King writes funny—and educational!—books for kids and immature adults. (His title The Big Book of Boy Stuff was once Amazon.com’s top-selling children’s book.) As a young lad, Bart discovered he could punch people into outer space. Sadly, he lost a lot of friends that way. Today, Bart is recognized as one of the world’s leading superhero experts. (And as a longtime middle school teacher, he is also highly sought after by supervillains!)

Read an Excerpt

Okay, so babies are cute just by being babies. We love to pick up the little tots and “coochie-coo” them. (Those chubby cheeks are irresistible.) Now here’s a cute question: Have you ever seen a toddler come up to a baby to “coochie-coo” him?

A kid you once coochie-cooed is now coochie-cooing someone else. How cute is that? Crazy cute. I call this Multiplying Cuteness. Because when a cute kid notices that someone (or something) else is cute, the cuteness multiplies.

That’s why little kids who play with babies or puppies or even just pick daisies make us feel really happy. It’s true! When you look at babies, your brain changes. There is a chemical reaction in your head, and you actually FEEL different.

And it’s a good feeling!

    The book on Cute!

    Mr. King teaches the definitive meaning of cute, delving into just about every cute possibility out there. Cute! tells us how things like animals, polka dots, sparkly things, babies and more all have distinct cute elements, and exactly what those elements are. Adorable line drawings throughout Cute! illustrate the lists and explanations of the culture of cute. Cute! has lots of Interesting facts like info about Japan¿s love of ¿mushi¿ ie. creepy, crawly critters or their drive to have a cute mascot for everything, even their forty seven prefectures (like states or provinces). I probably couldn¿t have guessed the cutest clothes would be considered footie pajamas, but apparently they are! There is even a chart in the back with a rating system set up to gauge cuteness, with options like big head, cute sounds, cuddly, etc. In Cute!, Mr. King leads us through all the reasons why ¿Cuteness is Happiness¿!
