9780857636546: The Baby that Roared

Mr. and Mrs. Deer would love a baby, and one day they find a little antlered bundle on the doorstep. Mrs. Deer thinks their wish has come true; Mr. Deer thinks that the baby is very, very peculiar. When the baby won't stop roaring, they ask advice from family and friends but it takes wise old Granny Bear to spot the problem: the baby's not a baby - it's a little monster. A very greedy little monster at that . . . and why have all their friends mysteriously disappeared?

About the Author:

Simon Puttock (Author) Simon Puttock had a peripatetic childhood, and he now likes to sit tight. He lives in Edinburgh, so there are mountains of things to see and do on his doorstep. Simon studied English Literature at Newcastle University, has written several picture books, and hopes to write 'just the right number . . .Whatever that turns out to be.' He has been shortlisted three times for the Royal Mail Award for Scottish Children's Books.Nadia Shireen (Illustrator) Nadia Shireen, the illustrator of The Baby That Roared, studied law and worked as a music journalist before following what she always felt to be her destiny through an MA in children's book illustration at Cambridge School of Art. Although The Baby That Roared is only her second picture book, her work is already achieving critical acclaim. Nadia lives in London with her husband.

Review:

Children will absolutely delight in the silliness of this book. The illustrations are colorful, engaging, and quite funny... A great read-aloud or lap read, this one will have older children checking to see if their younger siblings are what they seem.
—School Library Journal

Part of the charm of this mischievous story from Puttock is that readers know more than the main characters, a childless deer couple that don’t know how to deal with the baby they find on their doorstep. . . Shireen is a smart choice to illustrate, given the similarly wicked humor that propelled her GOOD LITTLE WOLF (2011); her mixed-media art plays up both the baby’s maniacal tendencies and the other animals’ cluelessness. . .The repetitive structure and subversive humor should make this a storytime favorite.
—Publishers Weekly
