A new baby can make for a busy family, but the Gags machine is always there to help out. A new baby means a hectic household for the whole family. Luckily Gags, the narrator's grandmother, is always around to help - turning into the Gags machine when the house is in need of a good clean and dinner must be made. But Gags also has time for fun stuff like playing dress up and going to the park. And when there is so much to pack for the family holiday to the beach, Gags is a great help too - but everyone soon learns that even Gags machines need a rest. This is an enjoyable early reader with valuable themes such as new siblings, imaginative play and the importance of family help.
