Description

When Baby Javier comes for a playdate, Baby Billy, a.k.a. Mustache Baby, feels the need to show him a thing or two, seeing how Javier’s new to town—and also sports an impressive beard. What ensues is a hilarious test of wills and facial hair, as each baby sets out to prove his manliness. It seems Mustache Baby may have truly met his match . . . but one-upmanship isn’t the point of a playdate, is it?

Editorial Reviews

"Ang's cinematic cartoon illustrations are again a joy. More a Mustache Toddler now but still getting into hairy situations, Baby Billy's still good fun."
—Kirkus

"The animated digital illustrations capture the spirit of competition between the children and add much humor...Children will also appreciate the playful tone of the narrative, which is replete with allusions to the Old West."
—School Library Journal

"The witty cartoonish illustrations provide additional humor, and the toddlers' constantly morphing facial hair helps emphasize their passtionate, over-the-top reactions. Younger readers will enjoy the silly story, and older readers will appreciate the amusing details threaded through the artwork."
—Booklist
