Exclusive Cover Reveal: Horrible Bear! by Ame Dyckman and Zachariah OHora

I love following Ame Dyckman on Twitter. She's hilarious! She's energetic! She's effervescent! For these reasons and MANY MORE, I'm HONORED and THRILLED and EXCITED to share with you the cover for her forthcoming picture book, HORRIBLE BEAR! 

Hi, dear Mr. Schu! Hi, kidlit friends! Ame Dyckman here! I’m OVER-THE-MOON to share HORRIBLE BEAR!, my next picture book with the AMAZING Zachariah OHora and our FABULOUS team at Little, Brown, will be available for pre-order everywhere any second now! (OOH! Maybe NOW!) What’s it about? Here’s Official Statement Guy to tell you!

The New York Times-bestselling duo behind Wolfie the Bunny presents a hilarious new book about accidents, outbursts, manners...and the power of saying "I'm sorry."

Bear didn't mean to break a little girl's kite, but she's upset anyway--upset enough to shout "HORRIBLE BEAR!" Bear is indignant. He doesn't think he's horrible! Then Bear gets a truly Horrible Bear idea. What will he do next? As Bear prepares to live up to his formerly undeserved reputation, the girl makes a mistake of her own, and realizes that maybe--just maybe--Bear isn't as horrible as she had thought.

THANK YOU, Official Statement Guy! And now, we’re SO EXCITED to reveal the cover here on Watch. Connect. Read.! Ready? It makes me laugh EVERY TIME! Here we go…
