Baby Ruby Bawled
Theo loves his baby sister Ruby who is happy as long as she is awake and being entertained.
But Ruby simply will not sleep: not at nap time, not at bedtime, not at any time.
As Dad, Mum, Nana, Grandad and Uncle Clyde each take a turn at trying to get the baby to stop bawling she is fed, bathed, rocked, pushed in the buggy and driven around in the car but nothing works... until Theo starts to sing to her.
An endearing depiction of a scenario all too familiar to many families with small babies, which is amusingly and sympathetically illustrated in Ken Wilson-Max's trademark style.
