Rabbit & Bear: A Bad King Is a Sad Thing

Book #5 of Rabbit & Bear
Illustrated by Jim Field

Rabbit and Bear must do everything they can to keep Icebear from becoming king in this story about friends, enemies, and how to avoid being pooped on by an icebear.

Icebear has arrived in Rabbit and Bear's valley, and he wants to be king. He's big and scary, and the more kind and understanding the animals are, the meaner he becomes. Will Rabbit, Bear, and the other animals find the solution within themselves, or will they need to ask someone else for help? Find out in this hysterical addition to the beloved Rabbit & Bear series. With humorous illustrations throughout, the Rabbit & Bear series captures the attention of readers with its honest characters, sticky situations, and occasional poop jokes.
