This is such a lovely book! I originally picked it up as a birthday gift, but bought two copies upon opening and finding wonderful writing and gorgeous illustrations! Devany keeps you engaged and at the edge of your seat as you find out what has become of Smelly Baby. Definitely a must for any parent or teacher who reads to little ones. Would buy again!
