The 11th book in the ever-popular Urban Babies Wear Black series showcases an exhuberant array of art-loving tots. Whether they're throwing clay (at the floor), amassing a collection (of stuffed animals), enjoying a still life (by eating it), or posing (au naturel, of course), these urbane babies are sure to inspire a new generation of Picassos.
