About the Author

Kate Beaton studied history and anthropology and worked in a museum before beginning her web comic Hark! A Vagrant in 2007, which now receives around 1.2 million hits each month. Her collection by that title debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in 2011, and was named one of Time magazine's Best Books of the Year 2012. Her picture book debut, The Princess and the Pony, was met to great critical acclaim. Born in Nova Scotia, Canada, she now lives in Toronto.

Reviews

Also from Walker comes King Baby, Kate Beaton's hilarious take on baby solipsism and parental abasement. [...] Beaton's second picture book is rich in egg-shaped infant chrysalises and her trademark manic humour, which will appeal to both parent and child. * The Guardian * The grandiosity of his [King Baby's] speech echoes Beaton's popular Hark! A Vagrant web comic, and will amuse readers both young and old. * The Irish Times * Everything about this book is funny: even the title itself is smirk-inducing. The cover is a joyous thing to behold and the joy continues... King Baby is genuinely brilliant. The clever text and genius illustration play against each other to hilarious effect. King Baby is a fantastic premise, expertly executed. It will have adults and children in stitches, and like all great comedy, it shows something true. Buy it for every new parent you know. * Booktrust * The perfect book to entertain new parents and young children alike. * Irish Independent * "Readers aged three to five will adore the dictatorial toddler in Kate Beaton's King Baby [...]" * The Irish Times *
