Summary
From the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award-winning creators of See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog comes a funny and handy guide that explains just how (and how not!) to say "I'm sorry."

Wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone knew how to apologize? Luckily, this humorous guidebook is full of practical tips about when, why, and how to say you're sorry. From a porcupine who accidentally popped his friend's balloon to a snail who was running so fast he stepped on a sloth's toes, hilarious examples and sweet illustrations abound. For both listeners who are just learning and older readers who need a refresher, this book will come as a welcome reminder that even though apologizing can be hard, it doesn't have to be complicated.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "With applicability well beyond its reading level, this latest outing from the creators of See the Cat: Three Stories about a Dog (2020) and other clever romps focuses on the importance of apologizing for accidents or offenses and how to do it properly. Wohnoutka lightens the earnest tone of LaRochelle's pitch with comical scenes of anthropomorphic cartoon animals either caught in embarrassing faux pas--a penguin parachutist literally dropping in on a crocodile in a bathtub, for instance--or expressing remorse, both sincerely ("I'm sorry I borrowed your socks without permission," says a giraffe to an earthworm) and insincerely. Along with rightly acknowledging that it might be hard, or even impossible, to fix mistakes (though an offender can make efforts to ensure that they don't happen again), the author closes with a promise that saying sorry and meaning it will make you and, more important, the other person feel better. Pair this with Joanna Cotler's Sorry (Really Sorry), illustrated by Harry Bliss (2020), for an unapologetically uplifting storytime."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Previous collaborators LaRochelle and Wohnoutka (Geisel Medalists for See the Cat) are loving but firm in this compassionate guide to apologizing. "Everyone makes mistakes," they begin. "And when you've made a mistake... the right thing to do is apologize." The creators acknowledge that saying "sorry" can be difficult ("especially if the other person is mad"), but they don't let offending parties off the hook, either--not even the adorable penguin parachutist who has crashed through the roof of a shocked alligator's bathroom. Straightforward narration underlines the importance of sincerity without excuses even if the one you've offended "owes you an apology too" (rambling examples of what not do make great readalouds). The gouache cartooned vignettes, rendered in crisp outlines and soft washes of color, have immediacy and verve that's both harrowing and heartfelt; while the animal characters are engaged in amusingly exaggerated situations, both parties' emotions are thoroughly authentic. If readers feel the pang of recognition, they'll also see that making amends is both edifying and evergreen. Ages 3--7. (May)"
