From an award-winning picture book team comes a hilarious alien's eye-view of Earth babies
"Good morning, class. Today we are going to learn about Earthlets."
In this way Dr Xargle, our friendly alien teacher, begins to teach his class about humans and babies. "Earthlets grow fur on their heads but not enough to keep them warm. They must be wrapped in the hairdo of a sheep." This is a hysterically funny book, with a particularly wry look at the way we bring up babies: look out for the "egg-mangle"—you may never want to eat eggs again.
