Local Author Making it Big!
June 03, 2013
By Bridget Heos.
Illustrated by Joy Ang.
You never know what you’ll get in the delivery room, and something isn’t quite right with this new baby. Mustachioed! “You’ll have to wait and see whether it is a good-guy mustache or a bad-guy mustache,” the nurse coolly informs his baffled family. Heos’s offbeat tale muses on the possibilities, playing off parental hopes and panicky nightmares. He could be a cowboy who cares for injured animals and mends broken fences. He could be a Spanish painter or a sword fighter. It’s hard to know what kind of person a child will grow up to be, especially as his mustache lengthens and curls unexpectedly. What if he becomes a cat burglar or a cereal criminal? Stay tuned.
Stay tuned indeed! Bridget's newest one hasn’t hit our shelves yet, but you can check out her other great books for kids right here!
