A funny, larger-than-life adventure for fans of No, David!
Call in the fire engires and police cars! Someone delayed sweet Sammy's nap a bit too long, or served him applesauce that was a bit too tart, and suddenly he's morphed into . . . Big Bad Baby! Now this giant tyke is on the loose, and he's taking the milk and cookie trucks by storm. No police, firefighters, or even librarians can stop him! Luckily Mom and his trusty hench dog are never far behind, and Mom has a few tricks up her sleeve. After all, every baby needs a blankie and hugs, even on really big bad days.
Hale (Clark the Shark) and Breen (Pug and Doug) have such a similar go-broad-or-go-home comic aesthetic that it's surprising they haven't crossed collaborative paths before. Together, they come up with a hybrid of Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and The Incredible Hulk, starring an almost naked toddler whose bad mood transforms him from kewpie doll to holy terror. "Pausing only to slurp from his sippy cup, Big Bad Baby set out to take over the world!" proclaims Hale, While the ensuing havoc not to mention the implications of a giant, filled diaper and a torrent of drool are almost too horrible to contemplate, Breen has a good time doing so. A highly expressive pooch named Boris, deemed Baby's "evil hench-dog," is actually a shocked reader surrogate, and is almost as much fun to watch as Baby himself. A surplus of maniacal jokes and sound cues ought to win the hearts of older siblings who know just how bad babies can be. Ages 3 5. Author's agent: Steven Malk, Writers House.
