Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of an infant is really like? In this bluesy story, sometimes being a baby is enough to make you cry! The new book from the author of Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp.

Oh, baby, wouldn’t it be grand to be a baby? No worries, no woes, the whole world doing everything for you. Like floating down easy street. But just wait one guitar-pickin’ minute. That’s a lie! Babies can’t talk, can’t walk, can’t even really chew. It’s enough to make the baby in this story blue, blue, blue. So get ready for a sad tale of soggy nappies, mushy meals and sleepin’ behind bars – which rather than making you cry, too, will more likely make you giggle!

Groovily illustrated by Lauren Tobia, Carol Diggory Shields’ ode to babyhood will have readers feeling anything but blue.
