Leah's Mustache Party Reviews
In this picture book from Canada, Leah simply adores the mustache her mother paint on her face for Halloween as part of her pirate garb. Although she can't be a pirate every day, she can wear a mustache, and her mother obligingly provides one whenever she asks. She even allows her to have a mustache-themed birthday party, and her guests get in on all the fun. Although I don't necessarily understand the charm of mustaches, other than to embellish our faces and make us feel as though we are playing as someone else, this book made me consider painting one on my own face to see how those around me would react. Leah is a great example of a youngster who doesn't worry about what others may think, but simply follows her own path, and her mother is wonderfully supportive of her desire to be herself.
When Leah dresses as a pirate on Halloween, complete with mustache, she loves it so much she decides to at least keep the mustache. She wears her mustache proudly almost every day and then gets a brilliant idea for her birthday party. Her unique mustache party is a big hit. Complete with cute colorful illustrations this fun story will be enjoyed by ages four to six.
Now I have to plan a mustache party at the library!
There's nothing marking this book as Inuit specifically, but I'm still shelving it as such since it's based on the Inuit author's own daughter.I was expecting a Flamingo Rampant style queer kids' book, and there's nothing explicitly (gender)queer about this book, but I love that Leah loves having mustaches of various colors and styles and her mother is always supportive -- and when she decides to have a mustache-themed birthday party, some of her friends are confused but they all play along, and the book gets to be a joyful celebration from start to finish.
