From the moment the baby arrives, it's clear that he is "the Boss." The Boss Baby is a very funny take on early parenthood, with exaggerated illustrations to make kids giggle too!

Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A new baby shows everyone who's really in charge in this hilarious board book from Caldecott Honoree Marla Frazee.

From the moment the baby arrived, it was obvious that he was the boss.

The boss baby is used to getting his way-drinks made to order 24/7, a private jet, and meetings around the clock. But when his demands aren't getting proper responses, he has to go to new lengths to achieve the attention he deserves.

Marla Frazee brings her signature wit and humor-along with adorable illustrations-to a book that explores the effect of one family's very unusual new arrival. This Classic Board Book edition is perfect for the youngest of readers (and the smallest of hands)!
Review Quote*"The concept is cute and the execution witty and efficient, with an agreeably concise (and straight-faced) text allowing plenty of room for the pictures to deliver the punch lines...Sure to be this year's baby-shower hit."--The Horn Book Magazine
Review Quote** "This wry picture book will appeal to parents, of course, but also to siblings who see a new baby demand so much of mom and dad's time and energy." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Review Quote** "The author again proves her storytelling chops and her artistic genius in this tongue-in-cheek tale in which text and image overlap seamlessly to deliver a perfectly timed punch line. Parents and older siblings will best appreciate both the visual humor and the new-baby blues presented here. Offer this read-aloud to families experiencing their own infantile corporate takeover."--School Library Journal, starred review
Review Quote** "In a perfect pick-me-up for both older siblings and bleary-eyed new parents, Frazee hilariously parses their new status. The brilliant baby-as-boss metaphor drives the book from the start...Clever and empathetic, this book is an especially apropos choice for the baby shower circuit."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
Review Quote*"Paired with perfectly timed, deadpan text, Frazee's artwork is as slyly comic and artfully expressive as ever."--Booklist
