Vera heard the baby crying as they passed her bedroom window.
How could anyone like that loud, smelly thing?

Where can Vera find some peace and quiet with a new baby in the house?

Now that Vera's baby sister, Ruthie, has arrived, Vera feels there's no place left in the house for her. The baby is loud and smelly, and she fills up every room. Vera wants nothing to do with Ruthie. When Grandpa comes up with a plan to make a special bean tent for Vera out in the yard, Vera is all for it. Of course, as beans and vines grow, so, too, do babies-and who knows where that might lead?

In her signature style, Vera Rosenberry explores another pivotal childhood experience in this honest and funny story.
