A subject dear to children’s hearts is in the spotlight as Leslie Patricelli’s beloved baby character returns.
Everybody does it: Kitty, Doggie, Daddy — even Mommy! And when Leslie Patricelli’s beloved bald baby does it while running, it sounds like a train. This frank and very funny look at a certain noisy body function is perfectly suited to the youngest of listeners, while their giggling older siblings will be happy to read it aloud.
Patricelli’s trademark style of thick black lines on brushstroke-heavy backgrounds in jewel-tone colors are perfectly suited to her playful and irreverent subject matter. The young protagonist narrates both offerings in simple, direct sentences, and Patricelli fills the rest of the books with captions and sound effects galore… [A] playful delight… —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Little listeners will delight in the book’s celebration of the joys of body noise. … For families willing to have some flatulence-themed fun, this is a must-have. —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
