The Wicked Big Toddlah

    The Wicked Big Toddlah

    Kevin Hawkes gives us a modern version of the Paul Bunyan lore. Kevin’s richly illustrated books are filled with adventure for the young ones. He is credited also for My Little Sister Ate One Hare, My Little Sister Hugged an Ape, both by Bill Grossman, and And to Think that We Thought that We’d Never Be Friends by Mary Ann Hoberman. There is nothing like a giant baby causing disorder on a large scale.

    Absolutely nothing exciting happens in Maine . . . nothing, that is, except for the birth of one giant baby. "That’s one wicked big toddlah you got there!" exclaims Uncle Bert . . . and so Toddie is named.

    Toddie’s a baby just like any other . . . sort of. The thing is, he’s big-really big. That means really big diapers, really big teeth, really big everything. From new booties that wear out the knitter to a bath in the ocean (it’s fun to play with boats!), Toddie goes through all the stages of baby’s first year . . . it’s just a little different for Toddie.

    Kids will laugh out loud as they see Toddie get into more and more trouble. . . it’s time for giant laughs all around!
