Where Is My Baby?
Seven anxious mother animals ask the title question, "Where is my baby?" The babies are revealed beneath each flap, as are their particular baby animal names (piglet, kid, chick, lamb, etc.), and each makes its signature sound (an oink, moo, meow, quack, chirp, baa, etc.). When turned, the flap changes the mother's expression from worried to delighted. Somehow, Mr. Taback is able to capture a mother's fond look on each of his animal creations. The last spread shows a parade of all the mother and baby pairs.
Who Said Moo?
After his ritual "Cock-a-doodle-doo!", a rooster hears an answering "Moo!" But who said the "Moo"? The rooster scouts the barnyard, asking five animals the titular question. Each lets him know what non-moo sound it does make (an oink, woof, hee-haw, and meow) until the rooster locates a cow, who confesses to being the morning moo-er--and her baby calf moos, too. The animal sounds are revealed beneath each of the six flaps, which when turned also show the rooster's comical reaction to each not-a-moo sound. On the last spread, all in the barnyard bellow their own special way.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
