Bobo and the Baby

Bobo and the New Baby. Rebecca Huang. 2018. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 40 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: This is Bobo. Bobo likes his life. He likes to snooze. He snoozes on the sofa. He snoozes in the bathtub. He snoozes in the laundry basket.

Premise/plot: Bobo's life is just about perfect. Then Mr. and Mrs. Lee bring home a baby. Suddenly Bobo doesn't feel like he belongs in his own home. Nothing is the same. Will he ever adjust to the baby?

My thoughts: I liked this one. I thought Bobo was adorable. The book is on the predictable side. Bobo "saves" the baby by alerting the parents to the danger of a bee. When he stops being the perceived "dangerous threat" to the baby, he once again becomes their beloved Bobo.
