Description
Bird and Raccoon are playing ball, when Bird gets bonked on the head. "Boo hoo hoo " he cries. What will make Bird feel better? A kiss? A cookie? A Band-Aid? Bird's friends Raccoon, Rabbit, Beaver, Sheep, and Fox are full of sweet and funny ideas.
Perfectly pitched and hilariously imagined, this charming story about a universal experience will put a smile on the face of every child who has suffered a boo-boo and every parent who has struggled to come up with just the right way to give comfort.


About the Author
When Jeremy Tankard s daughter was three, she said, Draw grumpy things, Daddy. He drew her a grumpy lion, a grumpy snake, a grumpy bear, a grumpy alarm clock, and, finally, a grumpy bird. The bird looked SO grumpy, SO ridiculous and so CUTE that they both started to laugh. Jeremy recognized a story in this character and sat down to write it. That story became the Los Angeles Times Favorite Book, Grumpy Bird, and more hilarious stories followed in Boo Hoo Bird, and Hungry Bird. The beloved Bird series has become a bestseller in Jeremy s native Canada and continues to soar. He lives in Vancouver with his wife and two children.
