Uh-Oh, Baby!

Rudy, the child from Catch that Baby (2011) is now a toddler and determined to give Mom a special gift for her birthday. First he chooses a ladybug, but it only flies away. Next he creates a gigantic block tower, then a sculpture of flowers, then an enormous portrait. The family dog, chasing the ladybug, manages to destroy each creation resulting in several “Uh-Oh” moments. Finally Grandfather helps him bake a huge cake, the perfect gift for Mom. Nash’s graphic illustrations have the feel of an old-fashioned comic strip with minimal text and plenty of action. A sweet story with an endearing little hero. Ages 4-6
