Tommy is excited when his mother tells him she is going to have a baby. When the time comes for the baby to be born, however, Tommy is disappointed to discover that his strict grandmother will be staying with him while his mom and dad are in the hospital with the new baby. However, Tommy learns that even though his grandmother is strict, she is very loving and knows the perfect way to help Tommy bond with his new baby sister. This story is based on an actual event from the childhood of author/illustrator Tomie DePaola. Color illustrations accompany the text.
Author Bio
Tomie De Paola
In addition to creating his own stories, Tomie dePaola is also well known for his retellings of folktales such as STREGA NONA: AN OLD TALE and FIN M'COUL: THE GIANT OF KNOCKMANY HILL, as well as his illustrations for the work of other authors such as Jean Fritz and Tony Johnston. dePaola has a B.F.A from Pratt Institute, a M.F.A. for the California College of Arts and Crafts, and a doctoral equivalency from Lone Mountain College. He entered a Benedictine monastery in Vermont for a short time after his graduation from college; many of his books reflect his interest in religion and spirituality. DePaola's works are noted for their conscious effort to avoid sexual stereotyping. In 2001 DePaola became the executive producer and star of the television program JIM HENSON'S TELLING STORIES WITH TOMIE DEPAOLA, a program intended to encourage children to use their imaginations and develop their own storytelling skills.


Kirkus Reviews
"As always, dePaola's illustrations convey a wide range of emotions through expressions and gestures, imparting a glowing sense of the security and love that surrounds this large family." 02/15/1996
