Funny, colourful and clever story tracing the 9 months during which a family await the birth of a new baby. Written from the eyes of a small child, we are given hilariously funny descriptions of the development of the baby in Mum's tummy and accounts of family life as the baby's birth draws near. In the style of the Simpsons, it is a uniquely fresh and entertaining title.

Review:

Another guide to your baby's development, presented with a wicked sense of humour (Mother & Baby)

Uniquely fresh (Parents News)

A must for anyone expecting a second child (Angels & Urchins)

Hilariously funny (Reading Evening Post)

Down-to-earth but highly entertaining ... with something for readers of all ages (The Guardian)

An amusing, contemporary baby development book through the eyes of a small child ... excellent and informative (Family Interest Magazine)

A wonderful antidote to the saccharine-sweet approach of many "new baby" picture books (The Children's Bookseller)

A funny, colourful, and clever book that will provide perfect entertainment for young children. (Amazon)

An excellent book with an interesting and effective design ... clear, often witty text combines perfectly with the pictures to make this a most original picture book (Books For Keeps)

Delightfully conceived picture book about baby development, with gloriously witty text. The pages grow in surface area with each passing month. (Achuka)

From the Publisher:

This is Kes gray's first picture book for Hodder, following his success with Eat Your Peas, winner of the Children's Book Award 2001, and Sarah Nayler's first ever picture book.

This book follows the development of a baby told through the eyes of a child. Each month, the pages in the book get bigger, reflecting increase of time and size, until at the end the pages are full size, as is the baby, ready to be born.

Sarah Nayler's wonderfully quirky illustrations bring out all the humour in Kes' text. She is an up and coming illustrator with an already established reputation.

Kes Gray won the Children's Book Award 2001 for Eat your Peas with Nick Sharratt. He has also been voted by the Independent as one of the Top Ten children's authors.
