The Power of Cuteby Charise Mericle Harper
Synopses & Reviews
The Power of Cute features lift-the-flaps, pull-tabs, and simple pop-ups and is told in a young graphic novel style. A hilariously dressed monster confronts a superhero baby and is very miffed that he is not scaring the baby. And why isn't the baby scared? Because the baby has a superpower—the power of cute—and, through this superpower, transforms the scary monster into a cute baby monster.
This funny story also addresses children's fears and provides a morale-building solution to confronting them.
"Harper's interactive, self-described 'graphic novel' pits a pint-size teddy bear — like superhero against a roaring, fang-toothed monster. The hero announces that he's unafraid of the monster 'Because I have a superpower.' 'Can you run faster than a speeding train?' the monster asks. Turning a wheel makes the two adversaries chase each other, but beneath a flap, the hero admits that's not it. What's his actual power? He's a cutie patootie — and he can shrink the monster down so he's cute, too. In books like Cupcake and Pink Me Up, Harper demonstrated that she knows a thing or two about cute; now she shows it's about being more than a pretty face. Ages 4 — 8."
