Description

Four-year-old Leah loved being a pirate for Halloween. She never considered being a princess or a fairy, no matter what her friends said.
But once Halloween has come and gone, Leah misses so many things about her costume. She misses her sword. She misses saying "Arrrr!" But most of all, she misses her silly mustache.
But Leah knows that it doesn't have to be Halloween to play dress up. She can wear a mustache whenever she wants! She can wear one while she's watching a movie, or riding her bike, or playing her favourite game.
So when Leah's birthday finally arrives, she knows exactly what she wants to do: have a party where everyone must wear a mustache! At Leah's mustache party, everyone gets in on the dress-up fun, even Grandma!

Editorial Reviews

“. . . [T]his simple story, with its quirky subject, captures the refreshing vitality of children . . .”


“. . . [A] fun little book about a girl, who likes having fun.”


“Although the text specifies neither cultural context nor setting, the author is Inuit, and her photo alongside her red-haired daughter Leah’s suggest that illustrator Chua based her illustrations of the fictional Leah and her mom on them.”


“Mike shows how much fun can be had with a few simple props and a bit of imagination.”


“I love her mom’s support of Leah’s fascination with mustaches. It would have been easy for her mom to say no, that Halloween was over, but she willingly lets her daughter indulge in her love of the mustache.” 


“. . . [A]cceptance of Leah’s mother conveys security and stability to young dreamers who want to explore different ideas and try on different looks. Highest recommendations for gender identity acceptance and exploration go to Leah’s Mustache Party.”
