Bartleby Huddle is a sweet, happy child. He gurgles and coos, giggles and laughs, but he hasn’t said a single word—not baby
, not peekaboo
, not even MINE!
The rest of the noisy Huddles— Mama, Papa, and big sister Isadora—outdo themselves trying to make Bartleby say . . . something! It’s only wise Grampy Huddle who understands that Bartleby will speak in his own good time. And when he does speak, they’d better listen!
Exuberant art perfectly captures the hilarious antics of this boisterous family as it learns a lesson from its youngest member and discovers the joys that can be experienced by the simple act of listening.
