The Lovereading4Kids comment

With the perfect blend of knowing observations and truly funny art, Sheena Dempsey's very first picture book perfectly captures the anxieties and frustration of having a new sibling. Ruby is finding her new baby brother a problem because mum spends too much time with her baby brother. Ruby wants to play with her mum, all by herself, every, all the time, without any babies! But when mum and Oliver do eventually join her to play she realises that baby brothers can be fun too and perhaps she shouldn’t send him off in a rocket on his own quite yet!!

Synopsis

Bye-Bye Baby Brother! by Sheena Dempsey

Ruby loves nothing more than playing, especially with Mum. But Mum is always so busy with Oliver, Ruby's little baby brother, and Ruby is tired of waiting. She's already looked at TONS of books, painted SO MANY pictures and she's even dressed her dog Rory in a very fetching stripy jumper. Babies are so boring. Ruby stomps out into the garden and there she begins to wonder ... what if she could magic Oliver away?
