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)!

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