“When baby Billy was born, his family noticed something odd…He had a mustache.” This purely silly story will have kids rolling with laughter. Lucky for Billy, his mustache is a good-guy mustache, and he becomes a cowboy, a Spanish painter, and finally “a man of the law.” While he helps keep his siblings under control, his mustache unexpectedly grows longer and curls up, becoming a bad-guy mustache. Now Billy is in for trouble. The fantastically humorous illustrations by Joy Ang make this book a pure joy to share one-on-one or with large groups of kids. And author Bridget Heos lives in Kansas City – maybe she will visit Manhattan sometime! Continue the hairy hilarity with Margie Palatini’s Moosetache or Mac Barnett’s Mustache!
