Another Untapped Picture-Book Market

At Booklist Coffee™ this morning, we were discussing My Beautiful Mommy and one of the youth books editors suggested another potentially untapped market: the very young children of very old celebrities. As some luminaries move on to their third, fourth, and fifth marriages, there does seem to be a growing opportunity here. Should any entrepreneurial types out there wish to get started, I have a few titles to suggest:

Why Can’t Daddy Roughhouse?

Ssh! Daddy’s Napping!

My Frail Daddy

Update

More suggestions from the youth department:

No Piggybacks from Daddy

Daddy’s Noisy Knees

Old Turtle: The Sequel

    Good one! I’m also trying to think of a more artful title for Daddy’s Pill Reminder Is Not a Candy Box.
