An animal cast so elated that they seem on the verge of jumping into readers’ laps. . . . The high-contrast pictures and exclamatory text are guaranteed eye and ear magnets for the littlest ones. – Publishers Weekly (starred review) I saw the baby! Did you see the baby?Yes! I saw the baby, the teeny weeny thing. It’s so exciting! News of the baby is buzzing from animal to animal, with each one – fish, bird, squirrel, insect, frog – boasting of seeing, feeding, singing to, tickling, and kissing the tiny little thing. With bold, graphic black-and-white illustrations, Mary Murphy’s simple, singsong story captures the giddy commotion that only a baby can bring.
Mary Murphy is the author-illustrator of many board books for children, including Slow Snail, I Kissed the Baby!, and Quick Duck! She has also created many picture books, including A Kiss Like This, Say Hello Like This!, and Utterly Lovely One. She lives in Galway, Ireland.
