Patrick Bear is the perfect playmate. Equal parts adorable and bratty, this endearing hero transforms daily routines into fun adventures. As he keeps his parents on their toes from breakfast to bedtime, Patrick also keeps early readers coming back for more. In this second Patrick Toon Book, four classic stories beloved by parents and librarians are given new life by the uncontested master of children's comics.
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.
