About this item


About the Book

Baby is King, and all his needs must be met by his subjects, otherwise known as his parents, but soon he will grow up, and who will rule them then?

Book Synopsis

A laugh-out-loud picture book with royal appeal!

All hail King Baby! He greets his adoring public with giggles and wiggles and coos, posing for photos and allowing hugs and kisses. But this royal ruler also has many demands, and when his subjects can't quite keep up, King Baby takes matters into his own tiny hands.Created by Kate Beaton, author of The Princess and the Pony and #1 New York Times bestsellers Hark! A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops!, this modern, funny, and (let's be honest) realistic take on life with a new baby is the perfect gift for anyone with an adorable little monarch in their world.

From the Back Cover

All hail King Baby!

King Baby is gracious -- bestowing splendid smiles on his public, allowing tickles and hugs, and posing for photo after adorable photo. But he also has many demands, and when his faithful subjects let him down, King Baby himself must take royal action.

From the creator of The Princess and the Pony and the hit webcomic Hark! A Vagrant, King Baby is the perfect gift for anyone who knows the joy (and the exhaustion!) of having a lovable little tyrant in their life.

The story itself is great, but this is NOT a board book as described. It is a regular hard cover with paper pages.
