Being a baby is downright frustratin'. Itchy diapers. Gooky mush. Naps and baths and bedtime. Who needs 'em? Not Chance. This baby is out of here. There is a whole new world out there! Bears know how to make breakfast last all day. Sea lions don't make you wait to swim after you eat. Monkeys eat bananas, not mush. Now this is the life! Or, maybe it would be if Ma was around to give a hug. Or Pa, pluckin' on his guitar. Or even Pa's slobbery ol' dog to share naptime with . . .

You know, maybe home wasn't so bad after all.

This delightfully quirky tale about leaving home only to find it again will leave you with a big smile, and maybe even the urge to call your own parents.

Itchy diapers, "gooky mush" for dinner, dog slobber on his rattle and extra baths all spur baby Chance to take his blankey and set off in search of a better life.
