From the creator of the hilarious Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same and Still Bigger, More Baggage. Sloane Tanen's chickens are back - but this time they've only got one thing on their minds: babies. Carrying babies around for nine months (a.k.a. the relief of maternity wear), naming them (their university prospects depend on it), entertaining them (the battle between homemade wicker-woven education toys and the tv), nourishing them (breast-feeding is so in right now), comparing them (they must be in the 96th percentile of something), protecting them from every conceivable danger From epidurals and stretch marks to diaper rash and day care, these wonderful scenes of modern maternity are as ingenious as they are hilarious. Specifically concerned with the joys, trials, and tribulations of pregnancy and the first year of parenting, Hatched! will have mothers and mothers to be everywhere laughing with recognition.
