Nothing's Wrong!: A Hare, a Bear, and Some Pie to Share (Something's Wrong! #2)

by Jory John (Author) Erin Kraan (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

A laugh-out-loud picture book from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Jory John and illustrator Erin Kraan about a rabbit who insists that nothing's wrong, until a good friend helps him open up--a companion to the popular picture book, Something's Wrong!

Anders does not seem like himself. He and his friend Jeff are headed for a picnic, but no matter how much Anders insists that he's feeling just fine, Jeff gets the sense that his best friend isn't being totally honest. Should he check in on Anders or give him space? Should he help him out or just be by his side? How can he be a good friend if he doesn't know what his friend might need? Nothing's Wrong! reminds us that even when nothing seems to go right, a good friend will be there for you at the end of the day.

School Library Journal

"Readers will be laughing out loud while learning the dynamics of friendship from two very different perspectives... The charming characters will have readers rooting for all involved, especially when all the woodland creatures join in the fun. This book is a wonderful exploration of the complexities of friendship and the importance of understanding unspoken cues... A gentle reminder for all ages that life’s ups and downs can be shared, this book is a welcome addition to any elementary ­library." ―School Library Journal


"A pie that plops, a mood that drops, and a friendship that never stops are the main ingredients of John’s latest zany adventure... [The illustrations] create a wonderfully textured, vivid world. A great resolution involves a picnic, many forest animals, and a resounding message about the power of always being there for your friends." ―Booklist
