WAAAAAAAAH! This family goes to great--and hilarious lengths--in trying to lull Baby to sleep until Little Brother discovers that what Baby really wants is something very simple. WAAAAAAAAAAH! What does Baby want? Mama's gone to bed, so Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt and Uncle, Big Sister, and Little Brother set out to soothe Baby. Does Baby want a soft feathery goose to cuddle? No. Does he want a flock of woolly sheep to keep him warm or a tree full of birds to sing him to sleep? No. As Little Brother proves, what Baby really wants is something very simple. Jill Barton's funny, warm illustrations are perfectly tuned to Phyllis Root's lively characterization of a family going to great--and hilarious--lengths to lull its youngest member to sleep.
