Where do babies come from? Mum suggests that you can make babies out of gingerbread, grow them from seeds or squeeze them out of tubes, while dad posits you can find them under rocks. Their children decide to set the record straight and, with the aid of a few helpful diagrams, show their parents exactly what’s what.
This facts-of-life book won best illustrated children’s book at the British book awards in 1994 and has since been translated into 73 languages.
