Publisher Comments:

Hazel canand#8217;t wait for her baby brother to be born so she can talk and read with him! But when, at last, he arrives, he just sits there. More disappointing yet, when he finally speaks, his first word is a resounding NO! But Hazel resolves to wait someand#160;moreand#8212;despite the ever-increasing NOsand#8212;and she keeps on reading aloud to him. Will Edgar ever say anything else? And if he does, what will his second word be?and#160;

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160; The magic of sharing books is at the center of this hilarious new baby story that will resonate with book lovers and any child who has trouble waiting.

Review:

"In a perfect pick-me-up for both older siblings and bleary-eyed new parents, Frazee (All the World) hilariously parses their new status. The brilliant baby-as-boss metaphor drives the book from the start, as a baby strides in from his taxi, outfitted with a suit (complete with rear-end flap and pj-style 'footies'), briefcase, and a permanent scowl. Caldecott Honoree Frazee milks this comparison for every possible laugh ('The funky thing was, he never, ever said a single word that made any sense at all'), and the baby's job perks include 'the spa' (a bubble bath), 'the executive gym' (he attempts a pull-up on a baby gym), and 'drinks made to order, 24/7' (the baby sits at a red-checked table littered with bottles, demanding service with his finger in the air). Cartoon vignettes in pencil-streaked gouache hum with a funky, retro style seen in sleek furnishings and the '50s fashions of the accommodating but increasingly exhausted parents. Finally, when the baby's tantrums can't rouse them, he discovers a more effective management technique — — 'Ma-ma? Da-da?' Clever and empathetic, this book is an especially apropos choice for the baby shower circuit. Ages 4 — 8. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Frazee brings her signature wit and humor--along with adorable illustrations--to a book that explores the effect of one family's very unusual new arrival. Full color.

Synopsis:

Hazel is dying for her baby brother to arrive so she can read and talk with him, and disappointed when he finally talks and his first word is a resounding NO. Will he ever say anything else?

Synopsis:

Understanding baby-talk becomes a fun game in this adorable and funny picture book for families.

When baby says "bah!" the rest of the family scrambles to bring him balls and books and bows and bottles, sheep and baby dolls and blankets and even a brother! But it turns out that all along, the baby was just trying to say "bye-bye."

A perect gift for baby showers, new parents, and new siblings.

Synopsis:

New baby brothers are

loud

stinky

and totally boring.

But are they tasty, too?

All the grown-ups in Tom’s life seem to think Baby Nathaniel looks cute enough to eat.

Would they really eat a baby for dinner?

Could Tom be next?!

Children will giggle and parents will smile as Amy Young puts a delicious twist on the classic new baby tale.
