Description

A celebrated illustrator reinvents a familiar lullaby with this story of a baby who will not stop crying and a big sister who tries to help. Hush, little baby, don't say a word, Papa's gonna buy you a mockingbird. . . . A baby who howls all night, parents at their wits' end, a peddler whose wagon is filled with toys and animals, and a big sister who accidentally-on-purpose starts it all--these are the players in this delightful and original interpretation of a timeless folk tune. Marla Frazee's story-in-pictures is a perfect lullaby for all restless babies and their exhausted, loving families.
