King Baby

By Kate Beaton


A laugh-out-loud picture book with royal appeal!

All hail King Baby!

He greets his adoring public with giggles and wiggles and coos, posing for photos and allowing hugs and kisses. But this royal ruler also has many demands, and when his subjects can't quite keep up, King Baby takes matters into his own tiny hands.
