What a lovely day at the fair!

Children lining up
for pony rides...
Moms and dads
in a pie eating contest...
Babies chasing butterflies...
Babies heading for the trees...


Where ARE those babies GOING?

Only a small boy sees them leaving and follows as the babies chase bees in trees, frogs in a bog, even bats in a cave, ignoring pleas to come back.

Will our hero save the day and bring all the babies home?

Caldecott Medal winner Peggy Rathmann has created a highly original story told in a lilting text and a bold new style with classic black silhouettes and stunningly colorful skies.
