Quote: I love Stupid Baby for its provocative attitude and for the wonderful, simple, evocative pictures... It’s going to work best if the reader can treat it with real humour and zest, the kids will certainly get it.
John McIntyre on National Radio, October 2012
Synopsis: There’s a new baby in Simon’s house.
“When’s that stupid baby going back to the hospital?” Simon asks his parents.
But the baby is there to stay.
What about all the scary wolves outside the house? The wolves that want to eat Simon up? Will his parents still protect him now they have a stupid baby?
