About the book
A funny and adorable celebration of family that reveals what babies are REALLY like.
By the creator of The Truth About Old People, a Children's Book of the Week in the Telegraph and Empathy Lab Read for Empathy Book 2020.
From the winner of the Macmillan Prize for Illustration 2017, The Truth About Babies is a new baby book with a difference. Are babies really beautiful, sweet-smelling, adorable little angels? Or is the truth a lot messier?
A warm and very funny picture book story with joyous and characterful artwork from the hugely talented Elina Ellis, that perfectly captures the joyous chaos that comes with a new baby.
