Description


Tender, playful, and full of joy, this ode from mother to child makes an utterly lovely baby gift and will resonate with readers big and small.

Oh, my Yummy One, my Utterly Lovely One
Look at you, so gorgeous

So opens a glorious praise song from a parent crane to her little cranelet -- drawing many other species into the circle of love as she sings. Warm, funny, and full of energy and affection, this is another gem from Mary Murphy, whose springlike palette is well suited to the story's celebratory air.

About the Author


Mary Murphy is the author-illustrator of Panda Foo and the New Friend, I Kissed the Baby!, and How Kind! She lives in Galway, Ireland.

Praise For…


The springtime feeling of UTTERLY LOVELY ONE comes from Mary Murphy's combination of comical animals, deliciously Easter-eggy colors and endearingly affirmative writing. This confection...positively demands that you cuddle the small child to whom you are reading it.
—Wall Street Journal

Infused with warmth and affection, much like the sound of a mother's voice. A nice choice to share at bedtime or cuddled close, this provides a good introduction to animal babies for the youngest children, who will recognize the differing fledglings as being not unlike themselves.
