Millie McBean is so excited to meet her baby brother. She can’t help but think about all the brilliant things they’re going to do together. However, when Rudy arrives he only wants to do one thing — cry!

WAAAAAA is a story of the bond between brother and sister and how the simplest solution can often be the key to solving any problem.
