Troublesome animals that are just too cute are taking over the real world and their natural habitat! Just Too Cute! presents a mix of playful stories and poems based on adorable yet troublesome animals. Mike Reiss creates an amusing world: a baby seal flops into Tiffany’s mistaking the diamonds for ice and walks out with them; danger-prone dodo birds; a polar bear who swallows up a circus, or two, or three. The moral of the story—all of the characters are “just too cute” to the point of no longer being “cute.”

While satirizing overly cute picture books in the title story, Reiss pokes wry fun at adults who excuse the incorrigible behavior of an adorable seal who escapes the zoo (“What a cutesy-wutesy, itsy-bitsy, chubsy-wubsy little guy!”).
