Years ago, I picked up THE BOSS BABY by Marla Frazee when it first came out, and laughed and laughed. I read it to my storytime group, and it didn’t go over quite as well. But as with a lot of picture books, I think this one was aimed more at the parents having to read it, than the children. While they might have laughed at this baby’s antics, only a parent would recognize the tongue-in-cheek jabs at what life is like with a baby in the house.
Flash forward to the present, and BOSS BABY is now a full-length movie staring Alec Baldwin. It’s getting good reviews, and will probably stay in theatres for a few weeks. It has a few more story lines than the picture book, and it is sure to be entertaining to the parents who take their children to see the movie. You can watch the trailer here:
