Children will absolutely delight in the silliness of this book. The illustrations are colorful, engaging, and quite funny… A great read-aloud or lap read, this one will have older children checking to see if their younger siblings are what they seem.

Part of the charm of this mischievous story from Puttock is that readers know more than the main characters, a childless deer couple that don’t know how to deal with the baby they find on their doorstep. . . Shireen is a smart choice to illustrate, given the similarly wicked humor that propelled her GOOD LITTLE WOLF (2011); her mixed-media art plays up both the baby’s maniacal tendencies and the other animals’ cluelessness. . .The repetitive structure and subversive humor should make this a storytime favorite.
