Quirk’s How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity showed cat lovers everywhere how to become global multimedia entrepreneurs. Now new parents can share the wealth thanks to this delightful companion volume. Armed with this handy, tongue-in-cheek guide, you’ll learn how to spot your baby’s potential and document each potentially adorable move—from wobbly first steps to refusals to eat “bwoccoli.”
Plus, you’ll get advice for dealing with tantrums (yours or theirs) and sticky tax situations (“it’s for her college fund, I swear!”). Filled with hilarious advice and adorable photography, it’s the perfect gift for new parents with an eye for talent.
