Description
A laugh-out-loud picture book with royal appeal! All hail King Baby! He greets his adoring public with giggles and wiggles and coos, posing for photos and allowing hugs and kisses. But this royal ruler also has many demands, and when his subjects can't quite keep up, King Baby takes matters into his own tiny hands.Created by Kate Beaton, author of The Princess and the Pony and #1 New York Times bestsellers Hark! A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops!, this modern, funny, and (let's be honest) realistic take on life with a new baby is the perfect gift for anyone with an adorable little monarch in their world.

Beaton keeps her book feeling fresh through humorous illustrations that expand on the wry text and never shy away from exposing the extent of King Baby's tyranny." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review* "Beaton offers a sly, hilarious dig at the way young parents bow to their child's every desire." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review"Utterly charming and delightful, this book will merit countless readings." -- BookishPraise for The Princess and the Pony:An ALA Notable Children's BookCBC Children's Choice Book Award Winner (Illustrator of the Year)Indies Choice and E.B.
