Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Hatched!:

"There are two stars in Tanen's books: her vermouth-sloshed wit shot through with a neurotic darkness, and miniature chenille chickens toting fingernail-sized Louis Vuitton bags ... [In] her new book, "Hatched! The Big Push From Pregnancy to Motherhood," ...[Tanen] redirected her alkaline humor at her fellow high-end parents. Now the chicks are obsessed with Baby Uggs, Bugaboo Strollers and whether their babies will master Mommy and Me yoga classes." --Los AngelesTimes

"Sometimes, the best gift for a mom is a laugh. Even the most sleep-deprived mother would be hard-pressed not to break a smile at Sloane Tanen's little toy chicken tableaus in 'Hatched!: The Big Push from Pregnancy to Motherhood.' It takes other authors entire memoirs to skewer some of the same targets that Tanen does in one-page zingers."--Seattle Times

"With witty photographs...and droll captions...it's the perfect gift for the pending or new mother. It's certainly good for some big belly laughs."--Daily News

"Sloane Tanen's latest work Hatched! is a hilarious, totally original take on the trials and traumas of pregnancy and motherhood. And by the way, Hatched! is THE PERFECT BABY SHOWER GIFT. We highly recommend."--Mommy Track'd

"If best-selling author Sloane Tanen's books Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same and Going for the Bronze--both of which are illustrated with chickens--left you chuckling and buying copies for friends, wait until you flip through Hatched! The Big Push from Pregnancy to Motherhood (Bloomsbury), out this month. Mothers, and those expecting, will adore Tanen's latest, wryly wicked addition to the series, which delivers the anxiety, competition, joy, and tribulations of having and raising babies."--Vanity Fair

"Get ready to be enthralled with Hatched, the newest picture book from Sloane Tanen. Tanen revisits the fuzzy chicks from Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same with intricate dioramas highlighting (and lowlighting) the trip from pregnancy to motherhood. Far from chick lit, Hatched forgoes the usual baby banter, instead tackling the oft-ignored: postpartum agoraphobia, ugly baby schadenfreude, and nanny envy."--Daily Candy

"If you aren't familiar with Sloane Tanen's books featuring her signature chicks, check them out. You're in for a treat…they are "crazy delicious"…Hatched tackles the embarrassing, mundane, and just plain not-fun parts of pregnancy and childbirth with Tanen's humorous take on the subject and her chicks as the 'stars.'"--Babble.com

"Tanen's take on motherhood via her little chickens is fresh and funny and every mother out there will be able to relate to the quirks and perks, the traumas and tribulations, of pregnancy, birth, and those first crazy months of keeping your infant alive."
--Behindthestove.com

Praise for Sloane Tanen's books:

"Wonderful."--New York Times

"Hilarious, cathartic."--People

"Poignant and wickedly funny."--Vanity Fair

"Hopelessly hysterical."--Boston Herald

"The funniest book you'll pick up all year."--Daily Candy NYC

    Hilarious!

    I purchased this book about a year ago for a close friend who was expecting after reading about it, and now that I'm expecting myself I decided to get my own copy. I'm so glad I did! Nearly every page had me laughing out loud. This book is so witty and pushes the envelope a bit, which is the kind of humor I enjoy. I passed the book onto my mom to read because I knew she would love it as well, and she liked it so much that she can't wait to share it with my aunts and her friends! I would recommend this to anyone who is expecting and has a good sense of humor.

    funny, funny and funny

    All of Sloane Tanen's books make me LOL. Something about that pointed humor coming from those little chickens just cracks me up everytime. So smart, so on point.

    Chicks keep getting better...

    I was so excited to see another title from Sloane Tanen. She continues to write with great wit and charm... and the chick photos are hilarious. A great Mother's Day or baby shower gift!
