For any child with a no-good baby in their house, Broach offers up a completely unique solution to the new sibling problem. The No-Good Baby has been at John's house for months and months, and more than half a year. She sleeps and cries at all the wrong times. She's messy and loud and ruins everything. "That no-good baby is good for nothing," John tells his mother. "It is time for her to go." "I guess you're right," says John's mother, and they start packing her bags.
