What a Babe is a children’s book illustrated by Captain Cartoon and is part of the Starlette Universe series created by author Kathy Johnson. The Starlettes include Skylar, a teen who turns every guy’s head, and Babe, the main character in this book, her younger sister. It chronicles Babe’s young life from the moment she is born until the time when she is aware of the people and the things around her. It is difficult not to immediately fall in love with this girl who is filled with enthusiasm about life, because it reminds everyone of their childhood too. And with the colorful illustrations that come with it, this book is simply delightful.

What a Babe entices its target audience with a colorful and eye-catching cover that is hard to ignore. This children’s book, however, should also be read by adults to remind them of a phase that we all go through: childhood, when the world was so much simpler and happiness was just a hug or two. With lovable characters that most anyone can relate to, Kathy Johnson’s book has a very simple and consistent theme, and is told in a series of humorous rhymes, accompanied by imaginative and vibrant illustrations. Told from the point of view of a new born baby girl while she grows up into a toddler, this book may change the way we look at children. This is a completely enjoyable book that I highly recommend to people of all ages!
