Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our know-it-all narrator is at it again, in this hilarious companion to the New York Times bestselling How to Be a Baby . . . by Me, the Big Sister. Take it from the six-year-old “bride-to-be”: No one will marry you if you don’t ever brush your hair and it looks like a bird’s nest back there. And never get married when it’s dark, because you might not see the groom, and marry the wrong person. When you have found your Own True Love, you must ask permission. “Can I marry you please?” you say. “Yes, please,” he says.

Here is the perfect book for kids who play pretend and throw mock weddings, and also for grown-ups who are actual brides-to-be. And don't miss the third installment in the How-to Series, How to Get a Job . . . By Me, the Boss.

Review:

"From the creators of How to Be a Baby... by Me, the Big Sister, comes a rambunctious and entertaining 'guide' to getting married, narrated by an overzealous little bride. There are a few rules — 'you can marry anyone you like! (Except they need to like you back)' — and traditions ('Now you throw a big bunch of flowers at people's heads'), but this bride's idea of marriage is all about pretend: when it comes time to say 'I do,' she's wearing a paper crown and the groom, a feathery, blue wig. With just a wisp of practical advice, this is a stylish and witty companion book. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
