Mustache Babyby Bridget Heos
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
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.” Plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor and cartoonish illustrations make this the perfect baby-shower gift for a mustachioed father-to-be.
Winner of the 2017 Colorado Children's Book Award "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

My three-year-old granddaughter thinks this book is hilarious!
not sure a child would understand the humor of this but it is a cute book. I bought it for a baby shower I am doing, my theme is "little man", incorporating bow ties and mustaches. This book is what all the guests will sign and leave the new Mommy a message. Thought it would be a cute keepsake.
I got this book on my Nook for my goddaughter to see if she'd like it. Little did I know what I was in for! Every time I see her now I have to read it to her at least 6 times. She adores this books. It's so cute and she just can't get enough. I'm so glad that it's getting her interested in reading :)
