I didn't like it. I guess I didn't like a children's book where there was a mother who was so disatisfied with her child that she would feed him an unknown food simple because she felt he was to small. As a mother this is very disturbing. I understand the lesson trying to be learned here, I just don't like the way it was told for being a small children's book. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book! I haven’t read it to my nephews yet, but I’m sure they would enjoy it as much as I have. This book has everything I wanted to have in a children’s book. It has beautiful illustrations that would attract the attention of kids. It has an engaging story that would keep them guessing till the very end. It also has a very valuable lesson that both adults and kids could learn from. I definitely recommend this book to parents and children alike. ( )

A very tired new mother wonders if her baby is too small. In a dream she finds a special food that could make her baby grow. But is that really in her best interest? Or the best interest of the baby? Or is her baby perfect the way he is?

As an exhausted new mother myself, I can certainly understand second guessing everything you see and do, and the dreams that come along with motherhood!
My toddler enjoyed the story and the illustrations

I received a free digital copy of this book from the author as part of LibraryThing Member Giveaway. This review is my personal view about the book and does not have any bias towards the author or his work.

Plot: The story is first person narrative of a boy telling readers about the birth of his younger brother and the events thereafter. Ever since the birth, his mother frets and loses sleep over the baby’s small size. She happens to compare him with other babies his age and always seems to find him smaller than normal. This anxiety turns into obsession taking form into her dreams as well. She dreams of Giant baby, giant bunny… The events in her dreams makes her realize her folly and teaches her to be satisfied with her child.

At times the story seems reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. There are giant babies, giant animals, and food that makes you grow big. The story seemed a bit didactic but the author brings them well subtly. The lesson at the end to be content with what we have is important in today’s highly competitive world. The mother is seen comparing her child and gets highly obsessed with size of her child. Similarly, we can see girls obsessing about their body size and body parts. None seems to be fully satisfied with the way they are born.

The book makes for an excellent bedtime story for kids and also has the lesson for them to accept themselves as they are. The illustration add charm to the text and speak for themselves. They are highly colorful and full of life. I would recommend this book for those who like quality illustrations and to parents with small kids. Its a good reminder to learn to accept ourselves and not be fixated or preoccupied with size. A good read. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this younger children's book. It has a very interesting storyline, almost Japanese Ghibli like.....strange but entertaining.
The underlying message being conveyed I think is on the mark, which is basically be happy with what you have.
I also liked that the narrative in the story was from the big brothers point of view.
The illustrations are quite fascinating too. ( )
