My Mom Has X-Ray Vision


My Mom Has X-Ray Vision
by Angela McAllister
Tiger Tales, 2011. Unpaged. Picture book.

How does Matthew's mom know that he is jumping on his bed, or using her good pans outside WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING??!! Matthew suspects she has X-ray vision, which he secretly thinks would be cool, and decides to test his theory. While he waits in a closet to see if his mom can find him, the reader gets to watch his mother in action. The colorful and crazy illustrations are perfectly matched to the story, and the use of different fonts throughout the text add to the fun. You will just have to read this book if you want to know how moms know EVERYTHING!
