King Baby

By Kate Beaton

I am King Baby! You have been waiting for me. I will give you many blessings, for King Baby is generous...

The second hilarious title from The New York Times bestselling author of Hark! A Vagrant and The Princess and the Pony. The perfect gift for any family expecting a new baby, this is a laugh-out-loud take on the joy (and exhaustion!) of having a new lovable little tyrant. All hail King Baby! King Baby is gracious – bestowing smiles on his public, allowing tickles and hugs, and posing for photo after adorable photo. But this teeny tiny royal ruler also has many demands, and when his faithful subjects can’t quite keep up, King Baby must take matters into his own hands…

  • If you thought there could be no character cuter than The Princess and the Pony's roly-poly pony, think again! Meet egg-shaped, take-no-nonsense King Baby, whose imperious words will incite many a giggle
  • The perfect title for wobblers graduating to toddlers, expanding and expecting families, new parents, children about to become new siblings, older siblings ... and all fans of funny picture books!
  • With her trademark deadpan, intelligent and completely original humour, this is another Kate Beaton title that will have both children and their parents laughing at the same time.
