Sophie Peterman is here to tell you the truth about babies.
Babies are not sweet.
Babies are not precious.
Babies are not cute.
What, you thought she'd just give it away? Well, here's a hint:
It's not pretty!
Sarah Weeks has written many books for children, including If I Were a Lion, Paper Parade, Angel Face, So B. It, and Two eggs, please. She lives in New York City. When Sarah can't get to sleep, she goes through the alphabet in her head, trying to think of people she knew in elementary school whose names begin with each letter.
"This is a familiar theme, but Weeks brings a snappy humor to her catalog of indignities, and older sibs in the audience will recognize and giggle at the truths...The illustrations, India-ink linework with a graininess that suggests black crayon and spaces filled with planes of digital color, have a robustness appropriate to determined little Sophie."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
