I would like to thank NetGalley and Lion Forge for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
After reading “This is a Taco!” by Andrew Cangelose, along with artwork by Josh Shipley, I never would have thought that there would be another book from this series! Enter “This is a Whoopsie!” and I automatically went to NetGalley and gave this new picture book a shot and man, was it one of the funniest books I had ever read!
Meet Whoopsie! He is a moose! And this book is supposed to teach children about moose and what their lifestyle is like in real life. Unfortunately, Whoopsie is extremely clumsy and he is constantly falling over himself on each page. After making too many mistakes, Whoopsie decides that he is not the right moose for the job. But, his bluebird friend thinks differently.
Will Whoopsie find something that he is really good at?
Read this book to find out!
Wow! Andrew Cangelose has done it again! I just loved the way that Andrew Cangelose writes the humor in this book as it is full of wit and sarcasm and it just makes this book a treat to read through! I also like the fact that this book has a more heartwarming tone than the previous book “This is a Taco!” did since this book focuses on the friendship between Whoopsie the Moose and the little bluebird who keeps helping him out. Josh Shipley’s artwork is another aspect of the book that I really enjoyed as the artwork is humorous and creative to look at. I especially loved the images of Whoopsie the Moose himself as he has a goofy expression, but he can also sport friendly expressions on his face whenever he is talking to the bluebird.
Overall, “This is a Whoopsie!” is a fantastic read for anyone who loves good humor and books about friendship and children will enjoy this book for many years! I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book, unless smaller children would have trouble understanding the humor of this book.
