A Baby in the Belly is the perfect picture book for any toddler or preschooler about to become a big brother or sister. Bouncy and delightful, this story will hit the spot for pregnant parents everywhere who need just the right book to introduce toddlers to the wonders of a growing family. Hamster twins Samster and Pamster wonder why Mommy's belly is getting so fat. When she tells them the answer, they just can't believe it, so they run to ask Popster, Gramster, and Bampa if it's really true. Finally convinced, the kids' excitement builds until at last the noisy little bundle arrives home. As in Chapman's previous stories, Pass the Fritters, Critters, and Snow on Snow on Snow, happily ever after is definitely in the cards! This is the first collaboration from writer Cheryl Chapman and artist Phil Lobdell. A Baby in the Belly is Phil's picture book premier. Born in a thank you note and ending up in a story, Phil's hamsters inhabit a world not unlike his own neighborhood!
