1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Comedienne Fanny Brice gave voice to the character she created, the trouble-making toddler Baby Snooks. Tormenting "Daddy" is Snooks' favorite pastime. Whether she's giving away his new suits or getting him in trouble with "Mommy", she's sure to get him to lose his temper - and to get a lot of laughs. When the inevitable punishment is meted out, listeners could count on Snooks' innocent reply: "Whyyyy, Daddy ..." Brice describes the character best when she explains, "She's my kind of youngster, the type I like. She has imagination. She's eager. She's alive. With all her deviltry, she still is a good kid, never vicious nor mean."

"After being expelled from the exclusive Colvin School for Girls for singing Mendelssohn in swing time, Judy Bellaire must go home and face her family. Although eccentricity is a family trademark, Judy's father Hillary and mother Diana are distressed that she has gotten expelled again. Only the family servants, Olga Chekaloff and Ricky Saboni, and her sister Sylvia seem to sympathize. Playwright Hillary is too busy rehearsing his new play starring Diana and Jerrold Hope, as well as coping with the family's strained finances, to listen to Judy. When backer John Fleming finally decides that he has had enough of the Bellaires and won't finance the play, Judy thinks that she can save them by performing herself. Although Ricky is a successful singer each night at the Cafe Nappo, he stays with the Bellaires to be near Sylvia, who returns his affection. During the various family crises, Judy is put on a boat to Europe to prevent her from taking a job singing at the Cafe Neppo, but she sneaks away and becomes a sensation, unknown to her self-absorbed parents. To further help the Bellaires, Ricky talks his boss at the Cafe, Signor Giovanni Vittorino, into backing a show starring himself and Judy. Meanwhile, because Jerrold has threatened to quit Hillary's play, Sylvia promises to marry him. Heartbroken, she sends Olga out with a message for Ricky, but Olga loses it and forgets all about it when she is given a part in the show. As opening night for Hillary's play approaches, a child welfare agent attempts to stop Judy from appearing in the play because she is under age, but Olga has the man arrested as a kidnapper. Discovering finally that Judy is not in Europe and fearing that she really has been kidnapped, they go to the police station, where they learn that she is appearing in Ricky's play. They go to the theater to stop her, but seeing her perform, they realize that the stage is where she belongs. Finally, the play is a success, Ricky and Sylvia are reunited and Olga chases after her long-lost love Boris, who is now driving a taxi"--AFI catalog, 1931-1940
