The Perfect Baby

Author(s): Tony Bradman

Picture Story Books

Lucy's new baby brother, William, is noisy and smelly, so Lucy insists he is returned to the hospital. She'd like to try another - less annoying - baby brother instead. But after trying a succession of babies from the New Baby Department, who turn out to be too boring, too hairy, and even too scary, it dawns on Lucy that maybe baby William wasn't so bad after all. In fact, he's perfect - as far as babies go, anyway!
