Friday Night Wrestlefest

Friday Night Wrestlefest by J.F. Fox, illustrated by Micah Player. Preschool - 2nd grade. Roaring Brook Press, 2020. Review copy provided by my local library. 

I knew just who I would hand this book to from the moment I picked it up. Do you have kids in your life that love wrestling? This book is their next bedtime story. Trust me. It's Friday night and after pizza for dinner, it's time for the family wrestling match. Meet Dangerous Daddoo and the twins, Peanut Brother and Jellyfish in the ultimate showdown. The book's written like a WWE announcer and the story has the same awesome moves and surprising twists as your favorite wrestling matches. 

Hand this to families with young wrestling fans or pair it with NiƱo Wrestles the World by Yuyi Morales for an ultimate storytime showdown.
