There, There by Tim Beiser

Rabbit complains, moans, groans and is "woe is me" over and over again.  Poor bear keeps responding" there, there" until he's had enough!

Tundra Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published June 6th.

The illustrations in this book are awesome.  I love how crabby the rabbit is and how bear tries to ignore the complaining.  It's like living with my little brother at home.  

When bear gets fed up, he drags rabbit out in the rain to a mudpuddle and shows him a worm.  He talks about a worms life and how he doesn't even know his end is there; if he sees it, he thinks it's another worm.  Rabbit finally admits life isn't so bad for him and they go back inside.  The best line in the story is when the worm meets itself coming and going and one end complains and the other says:  "There, there."
