Baby Ruby won't stop crying. Dad gives her a bath, Mum gives her a feed, Nana takes her for a drive and Grandad walks her around the garden. But Ruby keeps on bawling. At last her brother Theo has a go and sings her a special song he makes up. The whole family are so tired after all of this, they fall asleep - all except Ruby.

Review quote

"This is a nicely-tuned unexpected ending to the story, and the strong, painterly illustrations are quite superb." -- Elizabeth Schlenther * Book for Keeps * "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." * BookTrust * "A sweet family story simply told with lovely repetition and, of course, the wonderful alliteration of the title." * Books I Read My Son * "A lovely story about an extended family working together, which will appeal to all those who have ever wondered what to do with a bawling baby." * Parents in Touch * "A humorous and tender family story with special parent appeal." -- Angela Redfern * School Library Association *
