Former SNL writer and comedic rising star Julio Torres takes readers on a journey through the lives and intimate dramas of some of the unsung shapes of our time in this picture book inspired by his HBO special My Favorite Shapes.

Shapes. You’ve heard of them. You might have even interacted with a few. But do you really know them? From plucky Plunger, who wishes to defy his shape and become a beautiful vase, to other household objects with dreams of a life beyond their predestined roles, I Want to Be a Vase takes readers on an essential and visually stunning journey through the lives and intimate dramas of often-overlooked household appliances.

Reviews:

“I love this strange and brilliant book, which made me identify with a toilet plunger.”

Mindy Kaling, #1 New York Times bestselling author

 

“This book is such a delicious feast for the eyes. It makes me want to be a refrigerator so I can store the leftovers!”

Bowen Yang, actor, Saturday Night Live

 

“I’m deeply jealous of all the children who get to read this book. This is my villainous origin.”

Aidy Bryant, actor, Saturday Night Live and Shrill

 

 

 

My Review

🌕🌕🌕🌕🌕

First off, I just want to point out that the colors used in this book are phenomenal! They remind me of Candyland and Cotton Candy! This is such a cute book! Plunger decides he doesn't want to be a plunger anymore – he'd rather be a vase. As he goes through the house looking for his new perfect spot he finds others like himself. Everyone looks like they want to be something else. I loved the descriptive words each object used to portray their "dream job". A great book that kids of all ages will thoroughly enjoy!

Huge thanks to Rock Star Book Tours, Simon Kids & Julio Torres for my gifted copy!
