Filed under: Books, Kid's Corner — Tags: , , , — jennytf @ 8:00 am

Mustaches, real and faux, can be found everywhere now. They’re on faces, jewelry, and even favorite toys! Here are some picture books to celebrate this furry phenomenon.…

    

Big Bushy Mustache by Gary Soto

Ricky wants to look like his dad, but is upset when he’s told that he looks like his mom instead. Ricky’s big break comes when he’s given a mustache prop for the school play, which he takes home and promptly loses.

 Moosetache by Margie Palatini

Moose tries very hard to control his impressive moustache, but to no avail. It interferes with everything from cooking to skiing and even attracts a squadron of squirrels! It’s not until Ms. Moose comes around that Moose finds peace with his extraordinary facial hair.

Mustache Baby by Bridget Heos

It was weird enough for Billy’s parents that he was born with a mustache, but after it starts to take on a personality of its own, they have to determine whether his mustache is a good-guy or a bad-guy mustache!

Mustache! By Mac Barnett

When a handsome, but vain, king gifts his people with a very large portrait of himself instead of roads or a new playground, the dubious choice in artwork becomes subject to be the most comic of portrait vandalism, the mustache!

And a mustachioed tale for the 8+ crowd:

Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger (author of Origami Yoda)

Who knew that by purchasing the Heidelberg Handlebar #7 fake mustache, Casper Bengue would mastermind bank heists and then run for president? Only Lenny Flem Jr., regular guy, can see through Casper’s dastardly disguise to stop his pursuit of world domination.

To have even more mustache fun, make your own mustache on a stick!
