I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

What a clever picture book! I love the artwork! The story is fantastic. A bear with writer’s block finally figures out what to write thanks to his friends. When finally he creates a fun story, this reader falls in love with how the publisher displays it! Genius! You have a story of friendship, problem solving and presto magico–a nice surprise!

Kids like sudden surprises that pop up, or show up, or they find unexpectedly within the covers of a book.  This book holds a surprise sure to please any book reader (it made my day!) The hardcover and book jacket share the same artwork. This is a great creative team and I hope they work together again real soon! You never know, this book might inspire a child to write their own book! 🙂

This book, is going in my personal collection!
