David Horvath, creator of the hugely successful Uglydoll franchise, brings us another irresistable tale about a bossy little bear and his best friend.

David Horvath created Uglydolls with his wife in 2002. The dolls were an instant success and have now sold millions. Bossy Bear is David's first foray into the picture book world. He lives in Los Angeles, California.From Booklist:
With extreme minimalism, Horvath instills a valuable lesson in a humorous fashion. Bossy Bear, as his name might suggest, “likes things a certain way—his way.” As he goes about bossing others around and demanding what he wants when he wants it, his best friend, Turtle, picks up on his bad behavior. Bossy Bear sees the error of his ways and tries to set a better example for Turtle by being polite and friendly. The characters are depicted with clean, basic shape-based drawings—somewhat reminiscent of Mo Willems’ Elephant and Piggie books—set against bold, monocolored backgrounds, with only a few words of text per page. They’re a cute bunch of oddball critters, with wide eyes and expressive mouths—grimacing, smirking, and frowning are rarely so simple yet effective. They show a striking resemblance to the wildly popular stuffed Uglydolls, which Horvath himself had a hand in creating. The moral that behavior is contagious makes this a good choice for character education, and the recognizable and modern aesthetic ensures that it will be an appealing lesson going down. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Ian Chipman
