Mo's Mustache (Board book)
Mo is a monster who just got a mustache. A big, black, beautiful mustache. Everybody likes Mo's mustache. Now Knot, Dot, Nib, Tutu, Bob, Bill and Ben all have mustaches too. In fact, soon EVERYBODY has a mustache! Why is everyone copying Mo? And how will he (and his mustache) ever stand out?
A wonderfully silly book about style and individuality, sure to grow on readers who don't have facial hair -- and even those who do!

PRAISE FOR Mo's Mustache:
NPR's Book Concierge's Guide to 2013's Great Reads
"Monster + mustache = 'Huzzah!' With a soupçon of cool.... The half text/ half speech-bubble narrative will engage storytime audiences and lapsitters with a minimum of inflection on the reader's part. Requests for repeats are a certainty, and small ones will learn a lesson about individuality while enjoying this delightfully fun monster tale. Mo's mustache? Magnifique!" - Starred review, Kirkus Reviews
"Huzzah! Laugh-aloud funny, Clanton's story also offers a way to begin discussing individuality or peer pressure." - School Library Journal
