Baby Baby Blah Blah Blah!
Emily is about to be landed with a baby brother or sister - and she's not happy. She's heard all about how noisy and smelly a baby can be - and how older sisters tend to get ignored once it turns up! Little does she know that there's not just one baby on the way. This sensitive and humourous story explores the fears of a child expecting a new sibling.
