What's a bear to do when he (finally, after passing lots of friends) realizes he's left the house in his underwear? Written entirely in charmingly funny dialogue, full of whimsically drawn forest creatures (who, by the way, don't laugh at him), Something's Wrong! is utterly delightful.

Synopses & Reviews
A hilarious picture book from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Jory John, paired with new illustrator Erin Balzer, about a bear whose friends help him make it through a bad day!
Jeff the bear has definitely forgotten something. He ate his breakfast, he watered his plant, he combed his fur...what could it be? Why does he feel so oddly off? So he asks his friend Anders the rabbit what could possibly be wrong. It couldn't have anything to do with the fact that he's wearing underwear...over his fur...could it?
Another read-out-loud, laugh-out-loud picture book from bestselling and beloved author Jory John, paired with rising star illustrator Erin Balzer, about that horrible nagging feeling that it just might not be your day--but you know you have a friend to support you no matter what.
"A tribute to friendship...Anders's confiding reassurances and quick thinking make all-dialogue text by John a gift for the readaloud set. He's capably abetted by debut illustrator Kraan, whose textural earth-toned vignettes are gems of comic panic, dismay, and redemption." Publishers Weekly
