I understand that the book is meant to serve as a form of parenting-guide. Yet, I don't see how it works as that...I found it overly simplistic and patronising.

Synopsis

From the moment the baby arrived, it was obvious that he was the boss...

The boss baby is used to getting his way—drinks made to order 24/7, his private jet plane, and meetings around the clock. But when his demands aren’t getting proper responses, he has to go to new lengths to achieve the attention he deserves.

Two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee combines her signature wit and style with endearing illustrations in this clever take on one family’s very unusual new arrival.
