Perfect Picture Book Friday
It’s not out till June, but you’ll want to check out No Party Poopers (little bee books, 2020) by Gretchen McLellan and illustrated by Lucy Semple.
Two friends want to have a party, but everyone bear suggests, panda has an excuse why they shouldn’t be invited. Rhinos? Might pop the balloons. Peacocks? Show offs. Pigs? Hog all the honey buns. PAWSitively no party poopers allowed! But who’s the real party pooper?
Both in text and art this humorous tale will be fun for children and adults. And don’t we all have someone in our lives who finds the negative in everything? I love what bear finally does when panda has turned down every idea. This book could also be used to teach about acceptance and differences.
Check out author Gretchen McLellan’s other books here and read about her here. I love her sense of humor.
Illustrator Lucy Semple is from the UK. Read about her here and check out some of her work here. I love her use of vibrant colors.

In these pandemic times when we all feel like the world’s big party has been pooped on, this is wonderful 😉
Susan, I love Gretchen and her books. I have been looking forward to this one. Thanks for the sneak peek. I hope world settles & I can go to the book launch this summer.

Great title… now I want to know who wanted to poop how and how did they stop it? 🙂
You haven’t heard the phrase “don’t be a party pooper?”
