For fans of Jon Klassen and Jory John: This book shares the dry, winking humor of I Want My Hat Back, but it takes a softer, more lighthearted tack. Hand it to kids who love that series or the Goodnight Already! books.
You won’t guess the moral to this story: Rather than delivering a heavy-handed lesson about always sharing, the ending takes an unexpected twist: It’s okay to want some alone time, too!
An acclaimed artist: Andrea Tsurumi’s picture book debut, Accident!, made a big splash in 2017. It received three starred reviews, was a PW best book, and the New York Times called it a “groovy debut.”
★ “Absurd humor and frantic frustration fit Tsurumi…like a glove…. Sterer…nails how infuriating it can feel to be on the receiving end of unabashed selfishness…highly satisfying.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Resembling Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back (2011) in tone but with a kinder, gentler outcome.” —Booklist
“An enormously amusing read-aloud choice.” —School Library Journal
“Sterer’sto-the-point speech-bubble text is brought to life in the richly colored illustrations,making the most of the silly interactions; Tsurumi’s nimble, energetic linesadeptly convey the characters’ range of reactions.” —The Horn Book
