Crybaby

(2) PS Illustrated by Eugene Yelchin. Baby's crying wakes family dog Roy, then Mother and Father, the rest of the family, and the neighbors. The sound effects–heavy text describes each person's efforts to soothe the child. Roy's actions are first rebuffed, but he had the answer all along. Baby, reunited with her stuffed-animal sheep, drifts off to sleep--at six a.m. Collage illustrations against rich-hued backdrops have energy.
