Hey guys! Since it’s Friday I thought it would be fun to do a mini review. Especially since it’s going to be over two mini books about Gudetama. Now if you are familiar with Sanrio, then you already know him. I can relate to Gudetama on so many levels even though he is an egg! Thank you to Penguin for sending me copies to review, these are so cute on my shelves!
Meh . . .
From Sanrio, who brought you Hello Kitty, comes Gudetama, the lazy egg.
Not all Sanrio characters are cheery! In Japanese, when you’re lazy, you are referred to as gude gude. And that’s where our new friend gets its name. Gudetama (tama from tamago, egg in Japanese) is the lazy egg. Gudetama likes soy sauce and being left alone. Sometimes, Gudetama wonders if we are born only to suffer. And here, in Eggsistential Thoughts, are Gudetama’s musings on life.
Gudetama’s Guide to Life
In Japanese, when you’re lazy, you are referred to as gude gude. Gudetama (tama from “tamago,” egg in Japanese) is the lazy egg. Gudetama likes soy sauce and being left alone. Sometimes, Gudetama wonders if we are born only to suffer.
Each page of this book is kind of packed with helpful lessons, inspiring quotes and mind-blowing advice that will have you laying around like an egg in no time! And all of it comes straight from the yolk of a Gudetama!
Why is Gudetama so freakin’ relatable? I don’t think I can call him a spirit animal, but if I could I would. He is adorable, I mean did you see that butt?
As much as I love Hello Kitty (Yes, even at 26) Gudetama is the best Sanrio character. He’s not cheery in the slightest and I love it! For an egg, he is quite deep in his thinking process.
There’s not a lot to really review since this is a like a picture book. Each picture is accompanied by a few words. This was more like a small volume of pictures with witty words.
The artwork is adorable and hilarious. The text is was very funny and enjoyable. I felt like Gudetama’s Guide to Life was a bit more in depth than Eggsistential Thoughts, it had more words than pictures, but it’s worth the read!
Both of these will look great on your shelves or as a gift for fans of him!
