Older siblings who are intimately familiar with baby-related chaos will be in stitches over Earl’s imagined worst-case scenarios (“The baby could be in Meredith’s room trying to swim across a swamp full of poisonous snakes!”) as the animals race to save a day that doesn’t actually need saving.

Synopsis

Mom’s friend Mrs. Cunningham is coming for a visit, and she’s bringing her baby! While Buddy tries to explain the ins and outs of babydom to Earl, neither of them is prepared for the chaos the small and adorable creature brings with it.

When the baby manages to escape from its cage — which Buddy gently suggests is really just a playpen — it’s up to our favorite odd couple to save the day.

This third title in the critically acclaimed Buddy and Earl series follows a dog who likes to play by the rules and a hedgehog who knows no limits on another fun adventure in deductive reasoning and imaginative play.
