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
