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.

Fun book, with a good story and interesting characters. Good gender balance.

The bear is sleeping peacefully when the little girl's kite blows into his cave. Just as she tiptoes in to retrieve it, the bear rolls over, and… CRUNCH! The kite is crushed, and so is the girl's good mood: "HORRIBLE BEAR!" she shouts before stomping home in a tantrum. Awake now, the bear isn't happy either: "I'M not horrible! SHE woke ME up!" Indignant, he stomps to the girl's house for a confrontation. Will it result in more shouting, or can a timely apology defuse the situation? Chunky lines and bold colors heighten the drama in this funny and relatable book from the creators of Wolfie the Bunny.
