Horrible Bear! by Ame Dyckman & Illus by Zachariah OHora

This book has an unreasonable and feisty redhead as a main character, so it is pretty awesome! 

Here she is, flying her little kite. I think we can assume she is unreasonable at this point, but we just don't know it yet. 

Her kite flew onto bear's tummy. She walks in to retrieve it, but not before bear rolls over and breaks it. 

(Do you see bear's teddy bear?)

She reacts in all her unreasonableness glory. 

She maintains her unreasonableness the whole way home, ruining people's day in the process. Poor Goat just trying to have a picnic! 

She has a cute clothesline! 

I have a thing for clotheslines and I am not sure why. They are just so super!

The dazed bear began to come to. He reviewed his grievances. 

And got an idea....

First he practiced being horrible.

I love this bear and his Froggy Hollow t-shirt. 

They are both charging stompers. 

Annnnnd in all her huff and annoyance, she manages to break her favorite listener. 

All the starch goes out of her. 

Buuuut Bear is still being horrible on his way to see her. 

Poor goat. And squirrel! Do you see the little squirrel with a teacup? She is wearing a dress! So cute! 

He takes that cute clothesline to bits.

And then she apologizes and bear becomes a dear. 


And they repair all their horrible behavior damage.

And became friends together. Friends capable of horribleness. But aren't we all? 

(His book titles, in case you need to know these things are as follows:
The Goldilocks Myth
1,000 Ways to Cook Porridge
