"Family-friendly comic strips would seem to be nonexistent these days. But there is one-the delightful Baby Blues
--that kids can read and enjoy with their parents." --Virginia Parent News
"It's been a while since there has been a baby in Baby Blues, but here they go again. Darryl and Wanda, already the parents of two, are adding a third little one to the MacPherson household, and they somehow continue to stay good-humored about life amid the chaos of a household on the grow.
Never a Dry Moment is the latest collection of the phenomenally popular comic strip. In this latest collection, Zoe and Hammie watch in amazement as their mommy's pregnancy takes shape--literally. Zoe wonders if her mom's oversized belly truly is all baby or if it's also housing a whole box of pudding pops that seems to be missing. "That's a different bulge," says Wanda. "Check behind me." And Hammie and Zoe still want Wanda to play baseball with them, even if it is just to be the backstop.
Never a Dry Moment showcases Jerry Scott and Rick Kirkman's uncanny ability to humorously tap the everyday joys and trials of parenting young children.
