This book will be the perfect comfort food for new parents, the baby shower gift given by your wisest friend. Part graphic memoir and part standalone comics highlighting important childhood moments, CRY WHEN THE BABY CRIES guides parents from birth to age five. As Becky writes, “Think of this as the book equivalent to the best parenting Whatsapp group, the one where you can share your weirdest stuff and find out the other person did something worse.”
