The Book

Badger is bored.  He can't find one thing to do that interests him.  His friends Fox, Squirrel, Blackbird, and Rabbit arrive at his house and they feel exactly the same way.  Oh my, how will they ever get on with their day when there is nothing to do?  

Enter little Mouse with a black patch over one eye!  She sets the stage for a rollicking, exciting day where all the friends interact, use their imagines and play together.  Their spirits are lifted as they dive into the world of make-believe and creativity.  An extremely successful and stimulating play date ensues amongst the friends! 

Complaining, grumpy Badger re-appears in this fun story that kids will certainly relate to.  Boredom doesn't have to be .... well, boring.  With a dose of ingenuity and thinking out-of-the-box, boredom can be dispelled and replaced with exciting fun adventures that will make boredom a distance memory.  The humerous illustrations are adorable and detailed which I love.  I highly recommend this book!
