The Boss Baby

by Marla Frazee
Illustrator Marla Frazee

Little Simon | August 27, 2013 | Board Book

The Boss Baby is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
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)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Baby....he's arriving This gem of a book is the perfect gift to give to new parents just on the cusp of welcoming a new arrival into their home. Just look at that face on the cover...and the black formal business suit (complete with a back trap door)...and guess who is in charge?  You guessed it, yep the baby!  He puts mom and dad on a 24/7 schedule demanding drinks made to order, plenty of perks which include his own lounge and spa and of course his own executive gym.  He makes it quite obvious who's running the ship and it's not mom and dad.   It's Captain Diaper Pants.  From the moment he is chauffeured home from the hospital and the door swings open wide, there he is, in all his glory, briefcase in hand, ready to make his move.  This adorable spoof will have seasoned parents nodding their heads in agreement and bring big smiles to their faces because they totally understand how life will change when baby CEO marches in and takes care of the family business, on his terms and in his way. The illustrations are hilarious and the antics and expressions are priceless.  Baby....look out! Here comes the boss and he means business.

Editorial Reviews

"Paired with perfectly timed, deadpan text, Frazee’s artwork is as slyly comic and artfully expressive as ever."--Booklist
