Brother has a baby in the house. It is sometimes loud, often smelly, and always in need of attention, much like his big brother. (But do not tell the narrator, Big Brother, that!) Big Brother is simply big enough to appreciate his place in the scheme of things. Adults will enjoy reading this sweet story about a new baby in the house, and little Big Brothers everywhere will bask in the thought of eating cupcakes, riding Daddy's back, and snuggling with Mommy.

Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including Baby, Come Out!; Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story; The Tushy Book; The Belly Book; and Big Girl Panties. There is a real Katie Woo — she's Fran's great-niece — but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved Mac computer in New York City, without the help of her two naughty cats, Chaim and Goldy.
