Synopsis

Beard Boy by John Flannery

Ben tries his best to start on some scruff, but nothing works quite right. And when his dad explains he might have to wait 'til he's older for a beard of his own, he decides to take some more permanent action with a marker that is in the end, Ben just wants to look like his dad, and the two finally find a convenient compromise in this delightful new picture book.

Reviews

Praise for Beard Boy

Comically charming, this one-of-a-kind story celebrates the unique bond that connects father, son, and facial hair. A refreshing cut for young readers. Kirkus Reviews Flannery debuts with a sweetly goofy story about a young family that includes an emotive boy with a beard fixation Weinberg ( Rex Finds an Egg! Egg! Egg! ) works in a playfully disarrayed style, using loose squiggle to outline his characters in bright purple, bringing a jittery energy to the pages. Publishers Weekly
