The New Royal Baby by Timothy Knapman

A funny and reassuring book from the genius of Dinosaurs in the Supermarket author Timothy Knapman- perfect for all families with a new arrival on the way and a great gift for a new big brother. When a new royal baby arrives on the scene, the Prince is not happy. Everyone used to clap and cheer when he had his first bath or got his first tooth. Now people are only interested in the new baby's antics, but all this baby does is cry! It's up to the Prince to discover what all the royal racket is about and find a way to make his new sibling smile. Pefrect for kids who enjoyed the Roger Allen books, The Royal Nappy, The Prince and the Potty, The Queen's Knickers. Also a great way to introduce the idea of a new addition to the family in the tradition of Giles Andreae's There's A House Inside My Mummy''s Tummy. Timothy Knapman is both writer and playwright and was cast adrift on a boat made of books when he was very small, but made his way to Surrey where he now lives. He is the author of Mungo and the Picture Book Pirates and Mungo and the Dinosaur Island as well as the smash hit Dinosaurs in the Supermarket. Nick East has worked as a museum designer for many years but his love of children's books has always been a huge part of his life. He loves using his drawings to communicate his ideas and passions and has always used them to tell stories. He lives near York with his wife and children.
