Every time I read Mother Goose Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins, I transform into a star-struck teenager talking about their celebrity crush. There’s a lot of squealing, open mouth gawking, and an occasion dramatic sigh. Generic phrases like “It’s soooooo good!” and “You HAVE to read it!” spill out one on top of another. When people ask what I like about it, I talk about the amazing detail in the illustrations, Bruce’s hilarious expressions, and the edgy humor. I’m able to form coherent, adult-like sentences for a short while, but then I revert back to my 5 year old self and simply say “I love it so much! It’s my favorite.” Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Then do yourself another favor and buy Hotel Bruce. It’s sooooo good! You HAVE to read it!
