This book is short but not sweet! It is full of stories from the view of a big brother like little Chris putting spaghetti up his nose. All is going swimmingly until Chris asks where babies come from……! As you can imagine, his parents said they came from the cabbage patch! Everyone knew this was a fib, everyone except Chris!
This story is all about Chris sneaking out to the cabbage patch, in the middle of the night, to get a baby of his own - and he does - a real one! The little green baby stops breathing whenever Chris is not holding it, because it thinks he is it's father.
The whole family became famous and everything was fine, until Chris had to go back to school and the baby went with him! Can you imagine all the trouble that caused? How was he going to solve this problem?
