Disclosure: I received this complimentary product (Something’s Wrong) through Raincoast Books
I love the full name of this book: Something’s Wrong! A Bear, a hare and some underwear. Doesn’t that just intrigue you right off the start? I can well imagine that youngsters would be curious indeed. A fun read, friendship reigns supreme in this cute picture book.

The details for Something’s Wrong!
Jory John brings us a highly relatable book for 3-6-year-olds in Something’s Wrong! A Bear, A Hare, and Some Underwear. Erin Kroon does a wonderful job of providing forest-themed colours to tell the story of Bear and Hare, and of course…that underwear! The publisher of this 40-page book is Farrar Straus Giroux this is a Junior Library Selection. This hardcover picture is easy to hold and share with a group of children.
I am reviewing on behalf of Raincoast Books.
A nice sized text fills the pages of this fun picture book. What is a bear to do when he’s certain he’s forgetting something but just can’t remember what!??!?! He’s such a friendly bear even is his problem is weighing on his mind.
Do you think Bear might start a new fashion trend?
I would love to read this with a group children and then stop along the way asking questions. So why do you think his friends didn’t say anything? Do you think his friend Hare will be able to help? How could Bear forget such a thing? What would you have done?
Should you get Something’s Wrong?
If I were a teacher I’d add it to my stash of books to read with my children every year. I wouldn’t hesitate to add it my library or go borrow from the library. I found nothing objectionable, unless…you are a person who believes undergarments should not be spoken of.
The Tale of friendship and the colours used to tell the story fit the scenes so well, and I loved it. As a bonus, it’s a fun read. The ending of Something’s Wrong made me laugh! You’ll find it a good book to add to a unit study on being a good friend and learning empathy.
Well done Jory and Erin.
