Reviews

Praise for Beard Boy "In this well-paced debut, Flannery keeps the tone light-hearted, with Steve Weinberg's freewheeling illustrations -- his thick, loose lines have just the right touch of kid-gone-to-town-with-a-crayon -- adding wonderfully to the festive, affectionate mood."--The New York Times

"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 "Tailor-made for children with a yen to be just like their parental units, this is an inclusive and funny urban alternative to Frank Asch's classic Just Like Daddy."--Booklist "A befitting tale for Father's Day and a welcome addition to any collection needing amusing and engaging stories about father-child relationships. Ideal for storytime or for one-on-one sharing."--School Library Journal
