I've seen this book listed now on a bunch of different best lists for 2010 (Publisher's Weekly among them). It's certainly very clever and fun, but I'm not sure if a child would really get it. They would find humor in the concept of the baby being boss, but some of the phrases and references are definitely intended to make the adults giggle, without simultaneously making the kids laugh. I don't know, though, I haven't tried this one out on any kids, but on the first go-around I smiled, but wasn't blown away.
