Mustache Baby

Bridget Heos (Author) Joy Ang (Illustrator)


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.

"Occasional badness has never been so good."

"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
