About Penelope is a T. rex, and she's very good at it. She also likes to rock out on guitar! With the school talent show coming up, Penelope can't wait to perform for her classmates. But sharing who you are can be show-stoppingly scary, especially when… Norman is a porcupine. Mildred is a tree. Norman and Mildred are best friends. Just the two of them. But when a surprise pops up, life will never be the same again. Long-suffering Bruce once again contends with an increasingly crowded household, this time in an original board book where young ones can count the never-ending party guests. Full of fun characters and humor, 1 Grumpy Bruce is just right for our... Ruth the bunny is excited to share the smelly springtime smells of spring with Bruce! But what will Bruce think of all that stink? This pint-sized LITTLE BRUCE BOOK is perfect for fans of the Mother Bruce board books. Tigers love flowers and apples and books . . . but it’s hard to love flowers and apples and books when there might be WORMS inside?! Ryan T. Higgins's Bruce gets a whole new audience in this Level 1 reader. This brand new tale captures the humor of the Mother Bruce picturebook series while helping children transition from listening to books read aloud to reading a story...

Editorial Reviews

Review

* "Wry text and marvelously detailed pictures juxtapose uproariously...Higgins' softly fascinating textures, deft lines, savvy use of scale, and luminous landscapes (which evoke traditional romantic landscape painting, atmospheric in air and light) make for gorgeous art...Visually beautiful, clever, edgy, and very funny." -- Kirkus, starred review (A 2015 Best Book)

"The vision and cleverness of Higgins and his delightful illustrations have produced an outrageously funny picture book that
will make even the grumpiest readers laugh." -- Indie Kids' Next List (Top 10 Selection)

* "
Laugh-out-loud funny story...In Ryan T. Higgins's extraordinary illustrations, the dark purple bear with his perpetually furrowed brow contrasts delightfully with the cute yellow goslings who crawl and tumble all over him...Mother Bruce never cracks a smile as he dutifully raises his new family, but young readers won't be able to hold back." -- Shelf Awareness, starred review

"Higgins turns classic picture-book scenarios upside down, then wrings them for contemporary laughs." -- The New York Times

"
Readers will no doubt start giggling as they see Bruce push his shopping cart through the forest...hilarity ensues...Comic illustrations range from full-page paintings to spot illustrations and panels that combine to show Bruce's schemes to rid himself of the geese, culminating in a silly but sweet conclusion. This case of mistaken identity will lend itself to a fun-filled storytime." --Booklist
