Discover the Adorable

In a world of myth and magic, great heroes vanquish terrible monsters and earn a place in legend. But what about the babies left behind? This book is the first exploration of a new kind of adventure, the raising of young monsters to become loyal companions, beloved friends or fearsome guardians. If you are looking for something novel to spice up a fantasy roleplaying campaign, or simply want to see a different side to the creatures of fantasy art, the Baby Bestiary Book has all the monstrous cuteness you could want.

Funded by over 1000 aficionados of animal affection on Kickstarter in 2016, this book joins the Baby Bestiary 2015 Calendar in a new line of products by Metal Weave Games. The Baby Bestiary Handbook will add some ‘awww’ to your coffee table ornaments and ‘squee’ to your players’ squelching through dank dungeons.

Volume 2 features 41 fearsome beasties including: 

Aboleth Spawn, Baku Calf, Balrog Emberling, Beithir Hatchling, Bugbear Kid, Djinayni , Dragon Turtlette, Elder Godspawn, Enfield Pup, Gargoyle Mouldling, Harpy Child, Hippogriff Foal, Hound Archon Pup, Hydra Snakelet, Kraken Paralarvae, Lightning Lizardling, Lizardfolk Whelp, Medusa Daughter, Myconid Sporeling, Naga Hatchling, Ogre Magi Apprentice, Orcling , Otyugh Scrap, Pegasus Foal, Pertyon Hinulus, Pseudodragon Wyrmling, Purple Worm Violet, Remorhaz Chrystid, Satyr Foal, Sea Lion Pup, Shambling Tuffet, Shrieker Button, Simurgh Pup, Tarasque Hatchling, Tatzelwurm Kit, Troglodyte Tadpole, Troll Buddie,  Umberal Erebect Nymph, Unicorn Foal, Wolpertinger Kit, and the Xornling.

What is the difference between volume 1 and 2? The descriptions are identical, and the website doesn't even mention volume 2

You have a great point, I should add that. The difference is which beasts are covered,
Volume 1 covers 31 popular beasts while Volume 2 covers 41 (no crossover, the beasts were voted on by the backers

Updated both product listings to include the beast lists!
Thanks for the feedback (and yes we do need to update the website for volume 2 and other works)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
