ABOUT THE BOOK
In WHO WET MY PANTS? by Bob Shea and illustrated by Zachariah OHora (On Sale September 17, 2019; Ages 4-8), it’s not about the crime...it’s about the cover-up. A 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.
In the book, 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 begins. His buddies try to reassure him there was no crime, just an accident that could happen to anyone. But as all of 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 the support of good friends.

Ballet Cat and Sparkles the Pony are trying to decide what to play today. Nothing that Sparkles suggests--making crafts, playing checkers, and selling lemonade--goes well with the leaping, spinning, and twirling that Ballet Cat likes to do. When Sparkles's leaps, spins, and twirls seem halfhearted, Ballet Cat asks him what's wrong. Sparkles doesn't want to say.
