PreSchool-Grade 1-- Michael's baby sister keeps crying, despite family members' attempts to pacify her by picking her up, mugging, tickling, singing, etc. She finally falls asleep (apparently she'd been crying from fatigue), then wakes up and plays happily with Michael's finger. The humor of the book relies on the stereotype of parents who make fools of themselves trying inappropriate means to satisfy baby's needs. The unattractive cartoon illustrations (watercolor with marker) reinforce the desperate and goofy aspects of the parents, without lending insight, sympathy, or humor to the situation. That the illustrations are invitations to guffaw at the parents as buffoons is sure to seem demeaning to sensitive readers. --Liza Bliss, Worcester Public Library, MA
