Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Hayes, the Geisel Award-winning cartoonist of Benny and Penny in the Big No No! (2009) and two other Benny and Penny books, offers emerging readers another beginning comic book that's pure charm. Three short stories follow wee bear Patrick as he picnics with his mother, gets the better of naptime, and stands up to a bully. The bears have an endearing physicality, as though they could bounce right off the page and into plush, squeezable life, and Hayes displays a keen awareness of the volatility of a child's moods which flip from manic bursts of energy and hilarity to touching tenderness and their inexhaustible ability to channel pure focus into a new activity practically every other minute. In the title story, Patrick darts around dynamically composed and crayon-colored pages, moving readers' eyes up and down the page and left and right as he scares birds, chases a balloon, inspects a ladybug, and plays with a toy boat in the stream before splashing his way home through every puddle he can find. The rich vocabulary talks to kids on their own level but will also gently push their reading abilities. Endpapers offer parents and teachers tips for reading comics with kids and ideas on using them to turn reading into a fun, participatory activity. Sure to be a favorite in any kids' collection.--Chipman, Ia. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This emerging reader graphic novel by the Geisel Award-winning Hayes follows a young anthropomorphic bear named Patrick Brown and his gentle, laugh-filled adventures with his loving mother and father. In the first story, Patrick and his mother go on a picnic, and Patrick makes various discoveries regarding blowing up balloons and bugs, and sailing a toy boat. In the second story, Patrick confronts the Big Bear bully with wits rather than violence. These two tales are interspersed with one-pagers depicting such topics as Patrick's disdain for nap time. Very young readers will have no trouble following Hayes's gorgeous artwork, and the eager-to-please Patrick sets a good example. Readers will find the most humor in the expressions, as when the mama bear is less than thrilled with Patrick's decision to jump in puddles. Ages 5-7. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
