Animals gently angle to have a new baby named after themselves in this sweet picture book by Lizi Boyd, whose previous work was named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
"A name is a sound that follows you around. I'm listening for one," says Mother Mouse. Holding her new baby close, she fields suggestions from Sadie Snail, Kiki Cat, Merle Squirrel, and a host of other animals (many of whom would like to see the new baby named after themselves!). One by one, the animals suggest names for baby that would personally honor themselves. Lyrical text filled with wordplay will charm soon-to-be parents and soon-to-be older siblings alike.
Lizi Boyd is an innovative and celebrated illustrator. Her book Big Bear Little Chair was named a New York Times Best Illustrated Book of 2015.
