Equal parts adorable and bratty, this sweet bear transforms daily routine into fun adventures. As he keeps his parents on their toes from breakfast to bedtime, Patrick will also keep young readers coming back for more. Geoffrey Hayes, a Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winner and the uncontested master of children's comics, gives us four classic Patrick stories.
About the Author
Geoffrey Hayes, the recipient of the ALA's prestigious Theodor Seuss Geisel Award, has written and illustrated more than forty children's books, including the extremely popular series of early readers Otto and Uncle Tooth. But Geoffrey's most beloved creations are the Benny and Penny TOON Books and the Patrick stories.
While there's some of Patrick in all of us, we can see a great deal of Geoffrey in him. Geoffrey says: "When I was six or seven, pea really did seem like 'little green balls of mushy poison.' Oddly enough, peas are now one of my favorite vegetables. Chilled pea soup with mintthat's simply delicious!"
Another charmer from the reliable Hayes; newly independent readers won’t need any condiments to gobble it down. —Kirkus Reviews
Geoffrey Hayes's charming picture books make a smooth transition to a single-volume graphic novel collection for beginning readers. From mealtime to chores, from bathtime to bedtime, Hayes's quartet of tales captures the young cub's boundless energy and personality. ... Here's hoping for many more adventures starring Patrick and his loving family. —Shelf Awareness for Readers
Readers’ parents will also see themselves in Patrick’s parents. The detailed illustrations are definitely the highlight. They sequentially capture the emotion to such a degree that words are simply a nice addition. This is a book that will appeal to reluctant readers through humor and illustrations as well as through word repetition and basic vocabulary. —Library Media Connection
