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 sturdy board book the perfect baby gift for a dad with a mustache--or a sense of humor!

Editorial Review

"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
