When Mama tells Baby that she’s made a lovely lunch for him, she doesn’t know that the animals are listening at the window. And they are much hungrier than Baby. While Mama bangs on her drums – boom-biddy-boom-biddy-boom-boom-boom – the yellow cat, the brown dog, the red rooster, the black-faced sheep and the brown-and-white cow each eats a titbit thrown on the floor by Baby. Good Baby, who has eaten all his dinner, gets a banana for pudding and, this time, he eats it all up. Boom-biddy-boom-biddy-yum-yum-yum!
Children will love joining in the story as the animals enter one by one to gobble up the baby's lunch in this wonderful read-aloud story from bestselling author Margaret Mahy and beloved illustrator Margaret Chamberlain.
