Booklist - 09/15/2016 *Starred Review* A new baby sister has arrived to challenge bespoke-suited Boss Baby’s (first seen in Frazee’s The Boss Baby, 2010) dominant position in the home. This infant executive, complete with a laptop and dressed in pearls and a ruffled onesie, has implemented a business plan to restructure the organization from the top down. With her promotion to CEO, her big brother angrily gathers up his toys and stumbles off, demoted and out-bossed. He realizes in abject misery that the staff (aka his parents) seem strangely delighted with the tantrum-throwing hellion. She is fed, cuddled, photographed, and entertained, and her private pram limo exceeds any perks Boss Baby ever had. Furious, he tries outrageous antics, stripping his clothes off in the street and peeing on the flowers, but no one notices. Discouraged, he crawls into a corner, crying in utter despair. Sensing a breakdown in productivity, Bossier Baby seeks him out and soothes him, and the company is back to business (at least, most of the time). Frazee’s hilarious artwork in black pencil and gouache captures the challenges and emotions experienced at the arrival of a new sibling. Her wry satire on parenting and family dynamics cleverly captures a child’s feelings in this comical blend of words and pictures. Sheer delight. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
