KIRKUS REVIEW

The TV remote begins changing more than just channels once Baby gets hold of it: one “ZAP!” and all the toys get up and play on their own. Another “ZAP!” and the toy “aeroplane” grows big enough to fly Baby to the Moon. “ZAP!” and now the Moon’s a giant cookie. Time for Baby to come tumbling down into parental arms for bath, bed and—one last “ZAP!,” from Mama this time—dreamland. Dewan (Crispin, the Pig Who Had It All, not reviewed, etc.) outfits his gleeful toddler in yellow pj’s and a mass of curly red hair, arranges the buttons on the remote to resemble a face (seen winking in the last picture), and brings an increasingly worried-looking, plush bunny along for the ride. It’s an even bet whether children or weary parents will yearn more for a remote like this one. (Picture book. 3-5)
