Wow. Guy shaves his beard, but the beard isn't having it. The beard runs away and is eventually discovered by a little boy who adopts the beard and has some crazy adventures with it. The best part? The damn book comes with a beard you can wear and have your own adventures with!
Dad goes to shave off his beard when it runs away and lands on the baby's chin. It tries to find a home (on the Mona Lisa, a shoe, a potty) until the kids help the beard find a new home. This book is funny and creative and one we've been reading a lot.
