MOTHER BRUCE Is Funny!

January 28, 2016

Ryan T. Higgins the author/illustrator of Mother Bruce is a funny guy! This picture book, published by Disney-Hyperion, is laugh-out-loud hilarious!

Bruce is a grumpy bear who lives by himself. He doesn’t like much of anything except eggs. He whips eggs into gourmet recipes he finds on the internet. While preparing a new recipe with goose eggs, the eggs hatch into four cute little goslings. “Mama!” they say to Bruce. Bruce wants nothing to do with them and tries to return them to Mrs. Goose. Alas, she has flown south. The goslings are attached to Bruce. He tries to shoo them away, but they won’t have it. Like it or not, Bruce becomes their surrogate mother. Bruce uses his ingenuity to try to get them to leave, but nothing works. He is stuck with them as they grow from babies to teens to adults. Will he ever be rid of them? Higgins’ illustrations are delightfully funny. Each page turn offers a colorful variety of illustrations with clever lines and dialogue bubbles that kids and adults will love. If you’re a grump, Mother Bruce will make it all better!
