I didn’t think there was a whole lot here in this story.
The nephew didn’t think so either. There is a bug in the story and he liked the bug, but this might have been too young for him. At least it was fast. He gave this 2 stars.
The only parts I liked were "Tomorrow most likely the bug will seem worried. He's missing a friend. (His friend's name is Stu.)" and at the end where the last page says, "and Stu is okay." 🐿️
I'm sure everyone else will love it though.
The illustrations are gorgeous, colorful and whimsical...I could have looked at them all day and I can only imagine how fascinating they would be for little imaginations.

Dave Eggers, in collaboration with 826 National, and illustrator Lane Smith team up for the irrepressible, jovial and sweetly affecting rhyming story Tomorrow Most Likely, which takes readers on a look at the downright wonderful, unanticipated, and cool things that a tomorrow- and the world- may bring to you.

This is cute and imaginative, like something a kid would come up with at bed time. The art style in this is similar to the one Lane Smith used in A Perfect Day. It's a little whimsical with brush strokes occasionally visible. He chose to set it in NYC, primarily Central Park. The other stuff Eggers has put out recently for kids has been so profound I went into this expecting more from it. This isn't bad, just not what I expected. I ...more
The title of the book is a bit of a repetitive phrase, with an odd cadence of rhyming text I couldn’t quite get use to while reading it out loud.
The some of the rhyming words are bit forced such as: odd/ Cousin Todd. Another time the author admits at one point in the book that “ something won’t rhyme”!
The illustrations are great, lots to look at for a young reader/listener.
Love the yellow hat.
My favorite page shows a light brown hand holding a patterned rock. Text: "Tomorrow most likely/you'll pick up a stone/striped like a spiderweb or maybe a brain."
