A little girl can’t find her parakeet—her kitty must have eaten it! Right? Where else would it have gone? It was just here! She shouts, she accuses, and she laments her loss. But her cat might be trying to tell her something . . . With rhyming text and adorable art, Did You Eat the Parakeet? by Mark Iacolina is a sweet and silly picture book that will have children laughing through the final page.
In this hilarious tale of blame, compassion, and forgiveness, a very embarrassed bear is reminded that accidents can happen—but with the support of good friends, life goes on. Reuben the bear’s got donuts for everyone in his scout troop, but his friends are all staring at something else: there’s a wet spot on Reuben’s pants, and it’s in a specific area. “WHO WET MY PANTS?” he shouts, and a blame game starts. His buddies try to reassure him there was no crime. Just an accident. It could happen to anyone! But as all the clues begin to point in Reuben’s own direction as the culprit, Reuben must come to terms with the truth. Who Wet My Pants? isn’t a potty-training book. It’s a witty and wise story about embarrassment and anger, empathy and acceptance, and ultimately…forgiveness.
