When the introspective Frank meets the gregarious Bean, can they find a way to make beautiful music together? Dry wit and hilarious illustrations introduce a new unlikely pair.

Frank likes peace and quiet. He likes his tent, his pencil, and writing in his secret notebook. Bean likes noise. He likes his bus, his trumpet — toot, toot! — and making music. Loud music. But Bean is missing something: he does not have words. What will happen if Frank shares his words with Bean? With a laugh-out-loud narrative by Jamie Michalak, author of the Joe and Sparky series, and Bob Kolar’s bright, graphic, comical illustrations, this fresh and funny story will go down easy for beginning readers and young listeners alike.

Jamie Michalak is the author of Joe and Sparky, Party Animals!; Joe and Sparky Get New Wheels; Joe and Sparky Go to School; and Joe and Sparky, Superstars!, which Kirkus Reviews called a “little treasure” in a starred review. All are illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz. Jamie Michalak lives in Rhode Island.

Bob Kolar is the author-illustrator of Big Kicks and the illustrator of many books for children, among them Slickety Quick: Poems about Sharks by Skila Brown, Nothing Like a Puffin by Sue Soltis, and AlphaOops! The Day Z Went First and AlphaOops! H Is for Halloween, both by Alethea Kontis. Bob Kolar lives in Missouri.

Kolar’s (Trucker and Train) sleek, animation-style digital art and Michalak’s (the Joe and Sparky series) highly performative dialogue build to a manic hilarity that makes these pals, as Bean might say, “half cool and half amazing.”

The simple yet detailed illustrations create a cute story for young readers.
