The Baby That Roared!
Nadia Shireen

Ages: 3-7

Written by Simon Puttock and illustrated by Nadia Shireen.

Mr. and Mrs. Deer would love a baby, and one day they find a little antlered bundle on the doorstep. Mrs. Deer thinks their wish has come true; Mr. Deer thinks that the baby is very, very peculiar.

A very greedy little monster at that . . . and why have all their friends mysteriously disappeared?
