Barfburger Baby isn't the only name Jonathon has for his new baby brother, Daniel. Sure, he spits up all the time, but Gasburger Baby and Snotburger Baby also fit him--for obvious reasons.

And today all the relatives are coming over to meet the baby. They make silly faces and coo at Daniel. Jonathon just doesn't get it. Why does everyone make such a big deal out of the baby? And why do they still insist on calling him his baby nickname--Jonathon Pookie Bear? He doesn't even play with Pookie Bear anymore. But he does know just where to find him, and he figures out the perfect way to pass his nickname on so he can be just Jonathon.

For the first time, Paula Danziger shares her unparalleled pitch-perfect view of childhood in a picture book, and G. Brian Karas marvelously captures the emotions and family dynamics so that kids and parents will cringe and grin in recognition.

Under his breath, Jonathon insults Daniel on the basis of bodily functions (and, to be sure, readers will adopt choice terms like "Poopburger Baby" and "Snotburger Baby").
