"The concept is cute and the execution witty and efficient, with an
agreeably concise (and straight-faced) text allowing plenty of room
for the pictures to deliver the punch lines...Sure to be this
year's baby-shower hit."--"The Horn Book Magazine"
"Paired with perfectly timed, deadpan text, Frazee's artwork is as slyly comic and artfully expressive as ever."--"Booklist"
* "This wry picture book will appeal to parents, of course, but also to siblings who see a new baby demand so much of mom and dad's time and energy." --"Kirkus Reviews," starred review
* "The author again proves her storytelling chops and her artistic genius in this tongue-in-cheek tale in which text and image overlap seamlessly to deliver a perfectly timed punch line. Parents and older siblings will best appreciate both the visual humor and the new-baby blues presented here. Offer this read-aloud to families experiencing their own infantile corporate takeover."--"School Library Journal," starred review
* "In a perfect pick-me-up for both older siblings and bleary-eyed new parents, Frazee hilariously parses their new status. The brilliant baby-as-boss metaphor drives the book from the start...Clever and empathetic, this book is an especially apropos choice for the baby shower circuit."--"Publishers Weekly," starred review
