Dear Reader:

BABY WANTS MAMA is about that crazy hour right before dinner. Everyone wants something. Parents are coming home from work, the dog is underfoot, the baby needs attention... But eventually, the family members — along with their "wants" — come together in one place: the dinner table!

I've published many books for children, but this one is special to me because it was inspired by my son. Years ago, I was laughing at something his sister said. I guess he wanted to top her, because all of a sudden he planted himself in front of me and blurted out, "Baby wants Mama. Cat wants fish!"

Those lines were a real head-scratcher. And yet there was something about them...a jazzy rhythm...a hint of a story. I jotted them down in my idea file, and eventually they turned into this book. (My son is now 18—yikes!)

For a chance to win a signed copy of BABY WANTS MAMA, email I'll even throw in some crazy dinner napkins!
