Stewie BOOM! Is back

In this hilarious comedy, Stewie goes on an epic adventure in his neighborhood, to hook up with every girl while role playing as a baby. This results as a partialy slapstick, almost mature comedy for young adults, as it contains nothing graphic.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids having a tough time transitioning to a bed will find inspiration in this encouraging story of a boy conquering his fear. Stewie Boom!: Boss of the Big Boy Bed is light and relatable, with engaging art to draw readers in. While his parents and brother are loving and supportive, it's nice to see Stewie finding his own way toward the desired outcome.

The narration by Stewie sounds a more stilted and adult than natural and kid-like, however:

"In the morning, I woke up in Zoom's bed. I realized I had slept all by myself in a big boy bed just like mine, and it felt just right.

"At breakfast I yelled," I slept great in a big boy bed. I can't wait to sleep in my own big boy bed tonight! You were right, I just had to get used to it.

"'You should be proud of me,' I told Mommy and Daddy and Zoom and Princess Penelope."
