Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Board book
This is quite possibly the most confusing (deranged?) childrens book I've come across in my first few years of fatherhood. A representative stanza:

This new baby opens his eyes like two moons shining on a lake,
Like two dogs smelling for a bone,
Like morning love,
Like two cats jumping.

Two stars because my wife and I teared up while reading the last pages because we were laughing so hard. And the illustrations are well done.
