When Will My Baby Brain Fall Out? by Martin Baxendale

This is the first in a brand new series of humorous children's books by popular humour writer and cartoonist Martin Baxendale, whose spoof 'owner's manual' and 'survival guide' cartoon gift-books for adults sell close to 100,000 copies a year in the UK and have been published in more than 20 languages. Best-known of all is Martin's title Your New Baby - An Owner's Manual , which has sold over 400,000 copies in the UK and more than a million copies worldwide.Well illustrated with scores of giggle-making cartoon illustrations, When Will My Baby Brain Fall Out? is an hilarious tale of childhood misunderstandings. 7-year-old Millie gets hold of the idea that her problems with schoolwork are down to her tiny baby brain, which will soon fall out like a baby tooth, to let her big-girl brain grow in its place. Convinced that this will make her much cleverer, Millie is determined to loosen up her baby brain so the Brain Fairy can come and get it from under her pillow as soon as possible (and leave a suitably large cash reward in its place of course).

About the Author
