Synopsis

Hip couples have babies, too, and here is the book for them. With twenty-four tongue-in-cheek four-line poems and an affectionately quirky illustration for each, Mittie Cuetara gives us her larky way of looking at these wondrous creatures.

There is humor-and sometimes exasperation-in the situations portrayed, as well as the joy of having a baby around the house.
