From wriggling chicks to jumpy kangaroos, this hilarious rhyming picture book showcases different kinds of babies, all of which are perfectly, adorably beastly!

Making mischief, having fun
each is precious, every one.
In a knoll, a hole, or nest,
Mamas love their babies best.

In this delightful rhyming read-aloud, author Ellen Jackson and illustrator Brendan Wenzel introduce readers to all sorts of mischievous baby animals—and the grown-ups who love them no matter what. Featuring puppies that slobber, kittens who spill, and young gorillas who won't sit still, this book is sure to resonate with beastly babies of all ages—and their exasperated moms and dads, too!

Hello Hello - Autographed
Brendan Wenzel

Chronicle Books is pleased to announce that in honor of the release of Hello Hello by Brendan Wenzel we are donating $25,000 to the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) to save wildlife and wild places worldwide.

Hello, Hello! Beginning with two cats, one black and one white, a chain of animals appears before the reader, linked together by at least one common trait. From simple colors and shapes to more complex and abstract associations, each unexpected encounter celebrates the magnificent diversity of our world—and ultimately paints a story of connection.

Brendan Wenzel's joyous, rhythmic text and exuberant art encourage readers to delight in nature's infinite differences and to look for—and marvel at—its gorgeous similarities. It all starts with a simple "Hello."

Chronicle Books supports the Wildlife Conversation Society (WCS) and has donated $25,000 in honor of Hello Hello, which features over 30 threatened species.
