The adorable Rudy is back and busy finding a gift for Mom in this charming companion to Catch That Baby!
Little Rudy is determined to give Mom the best present ever—but nothing seems to be working! His monstrous block tower topples, the floral bouquet doesn’t turn out as pretty as he hoped, and his perfect paintings are sabotaged by the family dog. Will Rudy ever find a special gift for Mom?
