I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.
Bobos Babes are a princess, an angel, and a fairy who use their magical powers to help those in need. When they came across Russell the Swan, they knew that there was something troubling him. He lost one of the eggs he was supposed to be sitting on! I got tickled, and I know kids will too, when Russell kept going on about the lost egg and he didn’t realize that his baby was right there.
The Missing Egg isn’t only funny but it teaches that a baby swan is called a cygnet. It’s told in rhyme and it has adorable illustrations with vibrant colors. This is definitely a good book to read to the children in your life over and over.
About the Author
Bobos began writing poetry and stories at the early age of ten. She is a life-long Chicagoan who now raises her family in the downtown area. During the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, Chicago also became a city of unrest. Trying to keep her three young daughters in a world of magic during such scary times, the Bobos Babes Adventures were born. Her goal was to create a world of Harmony for her family and hopefully for others to escape, even if only for a moment. The first book of the series, The Case of the Giggles, was published in December 2020. The Missing Egg launched in March 2021. Thus far, she has written ten Bobos Babes Adventures and two chapter books. Two additional books, The Lion’s Secret and The Bobcat Birthday Party, are coming in 2021.
