Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Unlike his real-life counterparts, this toddler always asks for permission instead of forgiveness. Slegers' star from Bathing (2011) returns to introduce the family members, pets and toys close to his heart. The tot's quiet interactions receive a proper, if unrealistic portrayal in this Dutch translation. The youngster always inquires before engaging in even the most innocuous behavior. (He even seeks permission from the fish before watching him swimming in the bowl.) There's an unnatural formality at war with his chipper voice. "Hello, my older sister. / May I play with you? / Playing together is so much fun!" The name of the specific pet/loved one is highlighted in bold type. The characters' large, round heads (necks lacking) overwhelm the rest of their bodies. Perpetual smiles are in sync with the Stepfordian atmosphere. A stronger selection, companion Sounds, displays a similar pattern with its focus on the individual's experience; a more natural communication style highlights the boy's observations of a variety of commonly heard noises. An earnest glimpse into a youngster's familiar relationships falls flat. (Board book. 1-3)
