A reissue of Kes Gray's first picture book for Hodder and Sarah Nayler's first ever picture book. It is a funny, colourful, and clever book that will provide perfect entertainment for young children.

The story traces the 9 months during which a family await the birth of a new baby. Written from the eyes of a small child, we are given hilariously funny descriptions of the development of the baby in Mum's tummy and accounts of family life as the baby's birth draws near. Each month, the pages in the book get bigger, reflecting increase of time and size, until at the end the pages are full size, as is the baby, ready to be born.

This book will appeal to all young children, and will assist their understanding and development.

'A clear, often witty, text combines perfectly with the pictures to make this a most original picture book.' - Books For Keeps
