Synopses & Reviews
Usually the biggest struggles (and the biggest laughs) are over the smallest things, and nowhere is this truer than in households with kids. Baby Blues Unplugged, overflows with all of the familiar domestic discord and chaos that has made this venerable family comic strip such a phenomenal success. In one strip, Hammie makes skis out of hot wheel tracks and two hair scrunchies and careens down a mountain of couch cushions. Meanwhile, Zoe carefully deliberates whether she wants her bath with or without bubbles, finally telling her Dad, "How about a regular bath with bubbles on the side?" Baby Blues provides parents with a much-needed laugh as they battle the daily challenges of keeping pace with their kids.
For more than a decade, parents have fallen head-over-heels for the sidesplitting humor "Baby Blues" never fails to dish out. This collection revisits the never-ending mayhem concerning toys and vegetable consumption, and the roller coaster ride of refereeing preschool sibling rivalry. B&W illustrations.
