Description

With a new baby taking up Mama's time and attention, what will happen when Phoebe needs her? When Mum got a new baby, Phoebe got a new digger. And when Mum is busy with the baby, Phoebe and Digger are busy, too: "Waa!" says the baby. "Rmm!" says Digger. Poop! goes the baby. "Rmm!" says Digger. Finally, Mum says it's time to go to the park, the one with real dirt - and while Mum and the baby sit on the boring bench, Phoebe and Digger happily build and knock down and dig things up. That is, until a big girl comes by, a kid with mean teeth and grabby hands. Phoebe tries everything she can, but what if she never gets Digger back? Comical illustrations and a spot-on story capture a reassuring moment sure to make readers of all ages smile in recognition. A classic picture book. It touches on important topics - bullying, sibling displacement and playing "nicely". Created by two already popular (yet new-to-our-list) superstars, Tricia Springstubb (the Mo Wren books) and Jeff Newman ("The Boys").
