From the pages of the New York Times and the pen of Printz Award winner Gene Luen Yang comes a tale of math, aliens, and new siblings.
Thaddeus doesn’t like his new sister (she’s not that smart— and she gets all the attention). He likes her even less when he discovers that she’s an inter-dimensional conduit for peace-loving aliens (who are totally lame—all they want to do is knit socks for the homeless and have sing-a-longs!). But what’s even worse is that no one will believe him about any of this! How is he ever going manage to grow up to become the President of Earth?
First serialized in the New York Times Magazine, Prime Baby is a laugh-out-loud look at sibling rivalry.

I can't tell you how thrilled I was when my agent told me that the New York Times (NEW! YORK! TIMES!) wanted me to do a story for them. Newpaper cartoonists are a special breed of smart. I mean, you have to be funny every three panels! It was an honor to be in the same Sunday paper as them, if only for a little while. When the strip was finished, First Second Books liked it enough to compile it into a graphic novella. Prime Baby is a tale of mathematics, aliens, and sibling rivalry that was inspired by the ruckus at my own house after my second kid was born. Math nerds, new parents, and really evil third graders ought to get a kick out of this one. To end on a braggy note: Prime Baby was recently nominated for an Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication!About the Author:
