Families of all kinds will delight in this tale of new babies, sibling rivalry, bravery, unconditional love... and veggies!
"In the glorious tradition of Not Now, Bernard by David McKee, Dot's thwarted attempts to be heard by her parents are very funny, and her fierce and brave transformation in the face of imminent danger will have even the youngest readers shouting out in glee." Daily Mail "This book approaches sibling rivalry in an original and amusing way" -- Vanessa Lewis The Bookseller, Bookseller's Choice "OHora's acrylic paintings are the heart of this tale. They clearly show everyone's feelings from fear to sadness to joy to anger to love and everything in between, and there are brilliant bits of humor and whimsy added to the mix. VERDICT: A great book for one-on-one sharing that's also sure to be a storytime hit." School Library Journal, starred review "Interspecies adoption puts a fresh spin on the new-baby theme... A treat of a picture book." The Horn Book, starred review "A crowd-pleaser for crowds big and small." Booklist, starred review
