Good morning all! Thanks for coming by Booktomato today. I hope your long President's day weekend was enjoyable. We just stayed home and padded around the house doing not much of anything. It was really nice to have Netflix and the playground down the street be the only thing on our agenda!
Don't you just love it when you find a new book and with it, discover a new favorite author? An author that just really gets it when it comes to what kids and parents are going to love to read? You might already know Ryan T. Higgins for his books Roger Goes Up and Wilfred, but this is my first Higgins book and I love it!
Bruce is a loner and, let's face it, a bit of a stick in the mud. The only thing he enjoys is cooking recipes he finds on the internet, especially egg dishes. He spends his mornings foraging for his list of ingredients and spends his afternoons whipping up fancy dishes. Things take an unexpected turn one morning when the goose eggs for his hard boiled goose eggs with salmon-honey sauce hatch right in the pan! Bruce spends the rest of the story trying to figure out what to do with his new friends who are calling him Mama!
This book will make everyone happy. Kids will laugh at the goslings following Bruce around and calling him Mama. Adults will laugh at Bruce as he struggles through his forced parenthood, walking around the forest with the goslings in a Baby Bjorn style carrier. You need this one on your bookshelf! recommended ages: 3-7
