Hush, hush! Rush, rush! When Baby cries, her family and neighbors try to stop her tears and help her to sleep. But all their rushing and hushing, tickling and rocking, and feeding and burping can't stop Baby's tears. Roy, the old retriever, knows what Baby needs to fall asleep—her little white sheep! In this rhythmic and soothing lullaby of a story, doggy knows best. Good boy, Roy!


Praise for Crybaby

“The humorous cumulative text invites participation . . . Yelchin's mixed-media illustrations are fun and full of life. . . . Beautifully composed, each page propels the story to a climactic spread filled with hula hooping, magic tricks, juggling, soap bubbles, and music!” —School Library Journal

“The amusing illustrations of popular animals and the jaunty rhythm and rhyme will make this a favorite.” —Kirkus Reviews on Who Ate All the Cookie Dough?

“Sometimes the full savor of a book only comes through silent absorption. . . . Children old enough to read will get the full force of the harmonious combination of Lee Wardlaw's wry verse and Eugene Yelchin's witty illustration.” —The Wall Street Journal on Won Ton

“Yelchin's bright, graphite and gouache illustrations are almost impressionistic; they catch the eye and complement the text well.” —School Library Journal on Seeds, Bees, Butterflies, and More!
