Sophie accepts that her mommy is going to have a baby . . . sort of. But she wishes it could be the kind of baby she wants. After all, a regular old human baby can't play like a puppy, make funny noises like a monkey, or blow bubbles like a fish. Or can it? Sophie's in for the best kind of surprise!

The feelings of a young child are beautifully captured in this insightful and funny portrait of one of childhood's most momentous experiences.

Sophie's mother is pregnant—but even though her parents insist that it's going to be "a little baby human child," the precocious, mop-topped preschooler pines for something more exotic—a mouse, a puppy, a monkey or, if she's really lucky, a dolphin.
