Sharp and witty illustrations from popular artist Chess punctuate this easy-to-read chapter book about two reluctant siblings who welcome their family's newest member. Includes a recipe for babka. Full color.
Before the new baby is born, Beryl calls it Babka, hoping it will be a girl as sweet as Mama's delicious chocolate dessert. When it finally arrives, though, Beryl is disappointed. Not only is the baby another boy (she already has one little brother, Sam), but he has a stupid name and is just a big dumb lump, not the gorgeous genius the grownups say he is. However, her wise Uncle Morty has a few tricks up his sleeve. With a little magic and a little assistance from Mama, the aunts, and some old baby pictures, their Uncle Morty helps Beryl and Sam see that some things are true and unchanging, like the sun in the sky above and a family's love. Sharp and witty illustrations from popular artist Victoria Chess punctuate this easy-to-read chapter book about a unique and loving family.
