What You Need to Know:
• Funny, funny picture book that adults will appreciate as much as kids.
• A perfect read for a disgruntled older sibling who just had a baby sister or brother enter their lives.
• Also, good comic relief for sleep deprived, new parents.
• I read it with my nine year old daughter and five year old son and we all appreciated the humor in the story
   and the hilarious illustrations (Frazee's particular talent!).
Sweet Book Summary:
It strikes me Marla Frazee is a hoot. I think she would be a lot of fun to hang out with. Her books are really funny, and combined with her masterful illustrations, they are brilliant. This story is about a bossy little baby (are there any other kind?) and how when a baby comes into the parents lives, he/she just takes over. Frazee tells the story through hilarious office metaphors, "He put Mom and Dad on a round-the-clock schedule, with no time off." A really witty book, perfect for parents-to-be. Shower gift anyone?
