Happy Book Birthday to SUPER HAPPY PARTY BEARS #5 & #6!



Happy Book Birthday to everyone's favorite bears!

Two more Super Happy Party Bears books are out in the world! 

In BAT TO THE BONE, the bat-only punk rock band “Flying Blind” has a dedicated following of other nocturnal music lovers. Their screechy sound really meshes with sonar hearing. While on tour to expand its fan base, Flying Blind stops at the Grumpy Woods for a midnight show. Soon tons of rock fans are keeping everyone awake at night! But when the bears start jamming with the band, its sound changes, driving away the crowd. This time it’s Opal Owl who saves the day―and returns some peace and quiet to the woods.

In THE JITTERBUG, the Super Happy Party Bears are in awe of their new friend, Butter, a groovy caterpillar who’s got the moves. This Jitterbug can breakdance, tango, and boogie-woogie. Butter becomes an honorary Super Happy Party Bear dedicated to being goofy and spreading the party spirit!
When Butter mysteriously disappears, the bears frantically search for him, only to discover that the Jitterbug has morphed into a beautiful butterfly! The bears must accept that jitterbug has grown up and must follow his own fluttery path.
Cheerful, sweet, and full of fun, Super Happy Party Bears: THE JITTERBUG will put you in the mood to dance.
Join the party wherever books are sold!

#ICYMI: I Talk Marty McFly, Cartoons, and Easter Eggs on the All The Wonders Podcast with Matthew Winner



I had such a blast stopping by All The Wonders and chatting all things kidlit and Super Happy Party Bears.

The best part for me was when librarian-extraordinaire, Matthew Winner, actually read the beginning of SUPER HAPPY PARTY BEARS #1: GNAWING AROUND. It was the first time I heard someone other than me read my words. 

Have you listened yet?

In Knock Knock on Wood, Wallace Woodpecker’s pecking annoys the animals of the Grumpy Woods, but the Super Happy Party Bears think he’s beating a nice rhythm for dancercise! Can the bears help the rest of the Grumpy Woods appreciate his talents?
