Smart and devilishly funny, here's a book to celebrate kids who know what they like and don't like, and aren't afraid to show it! Auntie wants a smile from Baby, but none of her attempts are working. She's trying harder and harder and, to Baby's horror, harder still-in clever, guffaw-worthy illustrations that almost need no text. Is there anything she can do to bring about a smile?
This irreverent, silly book was originally published as Smile for Auntie in the 1970s. With its bold, saucy drawings and ageless depiction of childhood honesty and independence (not to mention adult neediness!), it is just as fresh and satisfying today. If you've ever had your cheeks pinched, you'll hoot as Baby gets the last laugh. And with its appealingly small size and low price, this just might be the perfect valentine for that loved one with an offbeat sense of humor.
