One morning, Bernard wakes up to find that his eyebrows have gone rogue. They’re sabotaging Picture Day, taunting his teacher, and growing, growing, growing out of control! All attempts to wrangle these bad brows just seem to make them angrier and more furrow-cious.
Why are Bernard’s eyebrows behaving so badly? And what do they want?
From Mike Petrik and bestselling author Jason Carter Eaton comes a hilarious romp about everything your face can—and does!—express.
What I loved: This book is funny and will definitely make kids laugh. The scenes with the brows are a little wild, but this makes it humorous. The overall message about what eyebrows do for us is cute and illustrates how we use them to express our feelings. The illustrations are full of fun and take the brows in unique directions that use a lot of imagination. I also appreciated the diversity of characters; for instance how Bernard seems to be bi-racial, with his parents having different skin tones and the principal of the school being Black.
What left me wanting more: As a small point, I am not fond of equating misbehaving with bad, as children may do some of the things the brows do (act silly in photos, spill other's ice cream, or make a mess), but this does not mean they are bad.
Final verdict: A silly book, BAD BROWS is a humorous picture book about the importance of eyebrows. Elementary school-aged readers will laugh at this imaginative story.
