About the Book

From the creators of Goodnight Already! and I Love You Already!, the third hysterical picture book about Duck and Bear, unlikely pals.

An excited Duck wants to hang out with Bear. But Bear’s gone fishing for a whole week and is happy to finally get a second alone.

What will Duck do while Bear is gone? How will he survive without his best pal?!

Critical Praise

“John and Davies team up for a third (and possibly the best) tale of reluctant, one-sided friendship. The story...[is] dynamic and begs to be hammed up during read-alouds.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Davies’ bright and funny illustrations are equal partners in the telling of the tale and its humor—Bear’s expressions say it all. This odd Duck and grouchy Bear make an excellent pair.” — Kirkus Reviews

“Davies’s background as an animator is evident in his wonderfully contrasting, ever-changing colors and kinetics. The use of varied panels, poses, and fonts keeps the eyes and mind moving through the action.” — School Library Journal

“Children will enjoy the light, satirical humor in this story of two unlikely companions. A hilarious choice for most libraries.” — School Library Journal

Come Home Already! ...[will] have you smiling as soon as you see the dust jacket and you’ll be laughing out loud at the book case.  The story inside will have your sides aching from pure glee.” — Librarian’s Quest (blog)

“Readers are going to thank you for reading it during story time and ask you to read it again.  You will certainly want a copy for your professional collection and your collection at home.” — Librarian’s Quest (blog)

“Packed with laugh-out-loud moments and wonderfully expressive illustrations, the tales of offbeat Duck and grumpy Bear beg to be read aloud again and again.” — Brightly
