Bald is beautiful. Bald—natural and otherwise—is a fashion statement. And now, bald is fun. A delightful gift book for anyone who wears his chrome dome proudly, Baldies is part field guide, part guessing game, part exuberant celebration of the follicularly challenged. On each page is a full-color illustration of a bald head—top only!—and the reader has to guess its owner. The portraits, by Brazilian artist Fernando L. Perottoni, are whimsical, lively, and packed with humor and character. Is it Louis C.K. . . . or maybe Larry David? Could it be Voldemort or perhaps Darth Vader without his helmet? RoboCop or C-3PO? Baldies delivers seventy distinctive portraits in all, showcasing real and fictional shiny pates including William Shakespeare, Michael Jordan, the Dalai Lama, Yoda, Morpheus, and the Lego Man. Quotes are sprinkled throughout the pages. How many famously hairless heads can you identify? (Don’t worry, there’s an answer key at the back of the book.)

This book, Baldies, by Fernando L. Perottoni, is packed with inspirational bald men and their words of wisdom! Each baldie head inside is actually a well-known, person or a cartoon character. The one character I could tell right away, which really made me want this book, even more, was the bald head of Homer Simpson. I just love is silly and stupidity! However, there are many and each one has their own quote that really means something when you think about it. The book really made me feel inspired and I just enjoyed trying to figure out who said that quote by the image of one's head. You learn something wisdom and get a cute book of baldies to enjoy viewing. There is in front a table of contents that explain each baldie inside this book. Therefore, if you can't figure it out, you will always know and learn something by their quote that follows. Finally, such an adorable and hilarious book! Also, this could be a fun game to play and try to figure out who is who. However, this book is inspirational, cute with the baldies of all types, and just fun for the entire family to read!
