Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bart King has done it again. I love the way his mind works, and his books are always fun." --Dave Anderson, AM Northwest

"This is a fabulous read. It's so much fun!" --Kimberly Maus, Good Day Oregon

"[This book] teaches the definitive meaning of cute, delving into just about every cute possibility out there. Cute! tells us how things like animals, polka dots, sparkly things, babies and more all have distinct cute elements... Bart King leads us through all the reasons why 'Cuteness is Happiness'!" --CuteEverything.com

"This spiffy little tome points out how cute animals are to humans, whether they are baby seals, puppies or even a salamander called the Mexican axolotl. King points out that many times what we find adorable in animals is that they have similar features to humans." KidsGuide Magazine

"Filled with fun facts and interesting tidbits, this is a title that tweens and teens are sure to flip through again and again. It's just the kind of book girls will flock to in their libraries and media centers." School Library Journal

King examines "cute" in American culture-from baby animals to shiny objects and all manner of adorable things in between. The text is not only a list of what fits into this category, but also a well-researched look at what people find so appealing and why. While Kalis's blue-line drawings are adequate, photographs would have really upped the cuteness factor in the overall book design. Filled with fun facts and interesting tidbits, this is a title that tweens and teens are sure to flip through again and again. It's just the kind of book girlie-girls will flock to in their libraries and media centers. (Elaine Baran Black School Library Journal 2012-03-01)

More About the Author

I write funny--and educational--books for younger readers and immature adults. My newest title is "The Big Book of Superheroes", and Disney Hyperion Books will publish my first novel ("The Drake Equation") in Spring 2016.

POP QUIZ-- One of my books was once Amazon's #5 overall bestseller. Guess which one!
HINT: It is a "big book."
ADDITIONAL HINT: It has a blue cover.
LAST HINT: It was "The Big Book of Boy Stuff".

Format: Paperback
Mr. King teaches the definitive meaning of cute, delving into just about every cute possibility out there. Cute! tells us how things like animals, polka dots, sparkly things, babies and more all have distinct cute elements, and exactly what those elements are. Adorable line drawings throughout Cute! illustrate the lists and explanations of the culture of cute.

Cute! has lots of Interesting facts like info about Japan's love of "mushi" ie. creepy, crawly critters or their drive to have a cute mascot for everything, even their forty seven prefectures (like states or provinces). I probably couldn't have guessed the cutest clothes would be considered footie pajamas, but apparently they are! There is even a chart in the back with a rating system set up to gauge cuteness, with options like big head, cute sounds, cuddly, etc. In Cute!, Mr. King leads us through all the reasons why "Cuteness is Happiness"!

What a wonderful book! It really is cute, but it is also clever. There's just as much smart in the book as there is cute, and kids are going to learn an awful lot of interesting stuff as they read it. Parents who read the book along with their children may be surprised at how much they enjoy it. The title and cover may be offputting for some boys, but a shrewd parent, teacher, or librarian can bait them with a little excerpting, like pointing out that the checklist of baby activities includes: cry, barf, poop pants. What middle school boy can turn down reading about poop and barf in the same book? I bought the book for my niece as an early Christmas present, and I can't wait to go over the Cuteness Review and Final Test with her.

Format: Paperback
I teach 7th grade. Mr. King's Big Book of Boy Stuff, Big Book of Girl Stuff, Big Book of Gross Stuff, and "pocket guide" books are favorites in my classroom library, and I don't even teach English! When I discovered that Mr. King had written another book, I knew that his witty delivery of interesting facts would produce another hit. I showed this book to my first period class and instantly had 10 girls asking to read it! By the end of the day, I had a waiting list of 32 students. Between checking out the book to students, I have perused many sections and Mr. King did not disappoint.
Do your kids/relatives/friends a favor and introduce them to Bart King's newest book!

this was a gift for my daughter & she loves it! At first I thought it was mainly a picture book, but it's actually more of a novel. My daughter struggles with reading, but she sticks to this book every time.
