The Boss Baby by Marla Frazee


The Boss Baby by Marla Frazee

From the moment the baby arrived, it was obvious that he was the boss. The boss baby is used to getting his way - drinks made to order 24/7, his private jet plane, and meetings around the clock. But when his demands aren't getting proper responses, he has to go to new lengths to achieve the attention he deserves. Marla Frazee brings her signature wit and humour - along with adorable illustrations - to a book that explores the effect of one family's very unusual new arrival.


The concept is cute and the execution witty and efficient, with an agreeably concise (and straight-faced) text allowing plenty of room for the pictures to deliver the punch lines...Sure to be this year's baby-shower hit. -- The Horn Book Magazine
