An award-winning author and a Caldecott Medalist introduce an adorable new circus star - who won't stop crying!
When Frieda and Boffo Clown have a baby, everyone in the circus is over the moon. But there is just one problem: Baby Clown won't stop crying! Frieda and Boffo try everything: putting on their silliest faces, driving him around in their tiny car. They even try taking off his red nose and big shoes.
But that just makes Baby Clown cry more. Can Frieda and Boffo turn his little clown frown upside down in time for the sold-out show?
Kara LaReau juggles wit and warmth in this hilarious nod to being a new parent, while Matthew Cordell's big-top-bright illustrations bring Baby Clown and his circus family to funny, frazzled life. Older siblings, in particular, will step right up to this applause-worthy picture book, joining Baby Clown in many a heartfelt "WAAAAH!"
