From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–The smartest baby in the whole world, introduced in Baby Brains (Candlewick, 2004), is back. This story is about the emergence of his musical genius: how his mother placed headphones over her tummy to expose Baby to classical music before his birth; how the tiny toddler, adept on toy piano, announces to his parents that he wants to attend music school; how he masters the tuba, cello, and timpani; and how he loves electric guitar best. ‘Rock 'n' roll is where it's at, Mom,' he declares from his stroller. He goes on to give a concert in a gigantic outdoor stadium, where an unintentional song becomes a megahit. Children will love the blue sleeper-suited tyke who graduates from music school after only two weeks, wins a talent contest, and, like many other children, suffers from stage fright. James's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are cheerful, charming cartoons, expertly rendered for maximum chortles. This book has star written all over it.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

From Booklist

PreS. Baby Brains, who made his debut in Baby Brains: The Smartest Baby in the World (2004), returns, this time as a rock star. The big-headed baby had been groomed for a music career in utero (Mom wore earphones on her belly, so Baby could appreciate classical music). After his birth, baby masters many instruments, but he's hooked on the electric guitar--ergo, "rock and 'n' roll is where it's at." So begins another career for Baby Brains, who last time out did everything from fixing cars to practicing medicine. However, when Baby's big moment as a rocker comes at an outdoor concert with thousands in the audience, he has a major meltdown. He wants Mommy! Fortunately, the band plays on, and the audience thinks it's all part of the best performance it has ever seen. Some of the silly goings on will appeal more to young readers than to listeners, but it's hard to fault the hysterical watercolor artwork that appears on full pages and in spots. Children will giggle at the sight of Baby Brains in his romper, picking up a huge guitar, or getting his one lone hair cut. Ilene Cooper

Format: Hardcover
Sequel to last year's BABY BRAINS...BABY BRAINS SUPERSTAR is a better more cohesive tale of this super-smart baby with common baby needs. While last year's BABY BRAINS proved his genius in many fields, BABY BRAINS SUPERSTAR focuses on the world of music. Baby Brains expresses an interest in music, and after attending weeks of music school is ready to take the rock world by storm. But on the night of his big debut, instead of playing his new song...he starts crying "I Want My Mommy" the crowd believes that this cry IS the intended song...and it becomes a smash worldwide hit...his parents however know the truth and rush to comfort their genius baby who promptly announces his retirement.

If you like children's books that have a adult sense of humor, I would highly recommend the Baby Brains books. This the sequel to the original book, Baby Brains. In this book, the very talented Baby Brains catapults to musical stardom while his parents look on with mixed feelings. It encompasses every parent's wish that their child is smart and talented (but hopefully, not too smart and talented) and that their child would grow up quickly - but not too quickly... The ending is very similar to the original Baby Brains book, and so maybe the author should stop at this one... the punchline might get stale after a while.
