Better than the first book! Very adorable and funny.

First sentence: From the moment his baby sister arrived, the Boss Baby had a feeling that change was in the air. The first thing the new executive did was outline her business plan and restructure the organization from the top down.

Premise/plot: The Boss Baby LOSES his position as THE BOSS, THE CEO, when his baby sister arrives. "The CEO was bossier than the Boss Baby had ever been. Which seems impossible." He does not react well to the new baby, OR, to the fact that his parents ADORE the baby b

Someday, we will get a humorous take on younger siblings where the parents aren't presented as completely abandoning their firstborn for the sake of the new baby. This, alas, is not that book.
Boss Baby is firmly deposed in the hostile takeover of a new CEO, and he's not happy. The new boss gets more perks than he ever had, plus the complete and total attention of the staff - even when he deliberately acts out for attention, nobody cares.
Finally, when he completely gives up on being noticed by a
True to life and absolutely funny! Marla Frazee is spot on with this bossy little baby.

Hilarious! Even better than the first book!

The “Bossier Baby” is the sequel to award winning book “Boss Baby” by author Marla Frazee. The picture book is about the former “boss baby” dealing with getting a baby sister known as the bossier baby because of her outrageous demands. Marla Frazee dabbles with the emotions of older siblings feeling out of place when a baby comes into the family due to the lack of attention they receive from their parents. While the illustrations are detailed and elaborate such as showing the “bossier baby” in p ...more

With the arrival of a new little sister, the Boss Baby has been demoted from CEO. Now she is running the house and the former boss is feeling a bit unneeded and unvalued.

You have to read this series as sarcastic social commentary. This is a tongue in cheek look at what it is like when a new sibling arrives in the house. Everything is spun in a funny way, though it represents some very real situations in a house with a newborn and a toddler. This would be a good one to use to talk with an older s
Young readers with baby siblings at home will definitely appreciate this funny picture book. When his baby sister comes home, the Boss Baby is demoted and she becomes the CEO. The humorous text and illustrations show how all of these changes has Boss Baby thoroughly dejected. It's hard to imagine anything will turn it around. Parents and teachers should note that in an effort to regain his parents' attention the Boss Baby takes off all of his clothes and urinates on some flowers outside. Be awar ...more

This book wasn't great. The movie based on the first book was definitely better and I'm sure if there's a movie based off this book that it'll probably be better too. The idea is great and definitely helps kids see how there will be some serious change after a new baby arrives but that eventually it'll all work out in the end. There were some pictures that I thought weren't very good. Overall this book wasn't great and I was very disappointed in it.

A new baby often means a new boss. The older sibling tries everything to get the attention of his parents and finally gives in to the new CEO in charge. However the new boss is just too loveable to stay mad at. This would be a great book for a child and family expecting and experiencing a new member of the family.

Recommends it for: families with new babies
This one made me chuckle. The sequel to Marla Frazee's Boss Baby- Bossier Baby is about how Boss Baby feels when HE gets a new baby sibling! The shoe is on the other foot! Use this with kids getting a new sibling. Inferring- words about a business- pictures about a family with a new baby in the 60's. As always, love Marla Frazee's illustrations.

There's a new baby in town and she's even bossier than the boss.

When The Wife happened to see this on the bookstore shelf her face was like OoO and then she brought it over and we all read it immediately. It has a lot of the charm of the original (which charm the recent film abomination apparently lacks entirely -- don't get me started), and happens to mirror our family yet again once baby #2 came along a couple years ago. It didn't quite match the mastery of the first one, but it comes pretty d

This is sequel to "The Boss Baby".
It is funny and quirky. When new sibling arrives, there are many changes. Parents pay more attention to a new baby. The older sibling may feel left out. It is a great picture book for older siblings and parents alike. Fun to read. And illustrations are cute.

With the same words and in the same vein as The Boss Baby, the sequel introduces a new baby -- and she is even more demanding than the first suit! Will he and his parents be able to keep up with the new boss? Just as cute as the first book.

Cute, though not quite as funny as the first Boss Baby - maybe because I'm now sad that Boss Baby has been deposed by a baby sister? I feel for him... 3.5 stars

The Bossier Baby is about a baby sister being born and the changes in the house -- how it feels to be displaced and how "the company" changes.

Not as cute as the first book, but the fact that the original boss baby is getting a baby sister who walks in wearing pearls is too cute to miss!

The kids and I (and even the hubby) loved this book. So cleverly written and funny.

It is also a story anyone with siblings can totally relate to.

Pictures pair well with the text.

Cute story. Great for an older sibling as the bossier baby is a hoot. Sweet ending as well.

A perfect story of demotion when the new baby arrives. The black Prismacolor and gouache illustrations are marvelous and very clever!

The Boss Baby gets pushed of his perch, relegated to being the non-interesting older brother.
