Brenda’s Beaver Needs a Barber

Oh, hello there! Let me tell you about a book that might tickle your funny bone. It’s called “Brenda’s Beaver Needs a Barber,” and before you start raising your eyebrows, let me assure you it’s not inappropriate or controversial. This delightful book revolves around a woman and her pet beaver. Yes, you heard that right, a beaver!

Now, keep in mind that this book was written a few years ago, way before the whole Coronavirus Pandemic took over our lives. But hey, with all the restrictions on non-essential services these days, who knows, there might be some folks out there desperately seeking a barber for their furry friends. And by furry friends, I mean pet beavers, not anything else you might be thinking!

Although the book isn’t specifically aimed at children, it can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Apparently, it was even read to a class of first and second graders, who absolutely adored it. They loved it so much that the teacher decided to give away a few copies as prizes for good behavior. Unfortunately, the teacher got into a bit of trouble later on, but rumor has it she might be reading it at her hearing. Talk about a memorable choice!

Now, even if you’re not planning on purchasing the book, I highly recommend taking a peek at the comments. They are quite amusing and add to the overall entertainment value. Just click through and let the giggles commence.

In terms of reviews, opinions on Brenda’s Beaver have been quite mixed. Some readers consider it the perfect white elephant gift, leaving everyone in stitches and wondering where on earth they found it. Others find it downright hilarious, although they do make it clear that it’s definitely not suitable for the little ones.

However, there are a few who found the book a tad disappointing. One reviewer mentioned that the title itself was the funniest part, and the rest of the story didn’t quite live up to it. Another reviewer saw it as a great novelty Christmas present, but, you guessed it, they thought the title stole the show.

On the other hand, some reviewers praised the book for its adult humor. One even declared it to be absolutely perfect, loving every bit of it. According to another reviewer, it’s like great adult humor wrapped up in an innocent child’s book. Quite the combination, wouldn’t you say?

To sum it all up, “Brenda’s Beaver Needs a Barber” is a delightful and entertaining tale about a woman and her pet beaver. It’s nothing inappropriate or controversial, despite what the title might suggest. So, if you happen to be in quarantine and know a fellow mom friend whose beaver could use a trim, this book might just be the perfect choice. And don’t forget, those comments are an extra dose of humor that adds to the fun. Happy reading, my friend!
