A bright and irresistible picture book about the effect of a new arrival on family life, from the creator of Maisy. When Za-za gets a baby brother, all is not well in the zebra household. When Mum returns from hospital, she's tired, and Za-za is looked after by Granny. When the new baby arrives, it gets all the attention from visitors and Mum and Dad. They're so busy that there's no time for toys or stories. Za-za, feeling neglected, demands a cuddle from Mum. "Why don't you cuddle the baby?" says Mum. And Za-za does, and enjoys it! When the baby goes to bed, Za-za finally gets the attention she wants and is read a bedtime story. This book was famously used by Tommy's The Baby Charity, for their publicity campaign.

Lucy Cousins, the creator of Maisy, won the 2002 Smarties Book Prize Gold Award for the Under-5s category with her picture book "Jazzy in the Jungle". She lives in Petersfield, Hampshire, and has four children.From Publishers Weekly:
Cousins's (Maisy Goes to School) childlike gouache figures and hand-lettered text set against bold fields of color give this oversized book a decidedly cheerful look. Za-Za, a young zebra, candidly narrates the story: "My mom is going to have a baby. She has a big fat tummy. There's not much room for a hug." A familiar scenario unfolds after Mom brings the newborn home from the hospital. Visitors arrive to coo at the baby, and Mom and Dad shower the interloper with attention, too. When Za-Za demands a hug "now!" Mom responds: "Why don't you hug the baby?" So the older sibling does just that-and, after spending some time playing with the little one, concludes, "He was nice. It was fun." Finally, Mom puts the baby to sleep, and Za-Za gets a hug and a story. If not the most clever or insightful book available on this well-worn subject, Cousins's simple story delivers a useful message to preschoolers in Za-Za's situation. Ages 2-up.
