The Bossier Baby

The Bossier Baby. Marla Frazee. 2016. 40 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: From the moment his baby sister arrived, the Boss Baby had a feeling that change was in the air. The first thing the new executive did was outline her business plan and restructure the organization from the top down.

Premise/plot: The Boss Baby LOSES his position as THE BOSS, THE CEO, when his baby sister arrives. "The CEO was bossier than the Boss Baby had ever been. Which seems impossible." He does not react well to the new baby, OR, to the fact that his parents ADORE the baby beyond all reason. What can he do to get their attention?! What won't he do might be the question. (Parents be warned, illustrated bums are shown!)

My thoughts: Loved this one too. The ending is especially clever. I liked seeing the Boss Baby and the Bossier Baby brought together by the end. I loved the personalities in this one. Babies do have personalities right from the start, and, no two babies are alike. For better or worse.The parents do seem a bit more relaxed this time around. (And one scene seems to hint that they are enjoying a couple of 'adult' drinks.)
