Once Upon A Royal Superbaby

Sorry Kate and William fans, this review has nothing to do with them.                    

*Combines the talents of three artists with wildly different styles than you aren't used to seeing in your son or daughter's room    
*Writer Kevin O'Malley is witty and does an evenhanded job demonstrating the worldviews of the different genders
*There is a shiny metallic robot unicorn that shoots frickin' lasers out of its horn

*I don't know what age this would be appropriate for and I don't think anyone who teamed on this effort knows either 
*Seriously -- that can't really be the title
*I'd be willing to wager that if your kid reads this just one time they will spend their college years in smoke-filled dorm rooms that don't smell anything like tobacco 

Maybe I've said it before, but I really feel like this could be the hardest book I've ever had to review.  I don't think I hate it, and I'm sure I don't love it.  I just don't know how to rate it.  So here's me taking a stab at some semblance of justification for the Donate review it's gonna get from me:  I'm not sure I'd ever feel right about pushing my son toward OUARS ... but if he picked it out himself, I'd think that was pretty cool.  Oh, and it happens to sound like the type of story that I was thinking of when I came up with this scale.
