Bear didn't mean to break the girl's kite. But she was upset anyway. Upset enough to yell, "HORRIBLE BEAR!"
Bear was indignant. "I'm not horrible! She barged in! She made a ruckus! She woke me up! How would she like it if--"
Bear got an idea. It was a Horrible Bear idea.
As Bear prepares to live up to his horrible reputation, the girl makes a mistake of her own, and realizes that maybe--just maybe--Bear isn't as horrible as she had thought.
Horrible Bear is a book about accidents, outbursts, manners...and the power of saying "I'm sorry."
Praise for Horrible Bear!:
