Bird and Raccoon are playing ball when Bird gets bonked on the head. "Boo hoo hoo!" he cries. What will make Bird feel better? A kiss? A cookie? A Band-Aid? Bird's friends Raccoon, Rabbit, Beaver, Sheep and Fox are full of sweet and funny ideas.
Perfectly pitched and hilariously imagined, this charming story about a universal experience will put a smile on the face of every child who has suffered a boo-boo and every parent who has struggled to come up with just the right way to give comfort.

"... kids and adults will laugh in spite of themselves... the theme of friendship coupled with Tankards's whimsical visuals make [this] an ideal book for storytime." -Quill & Quire, starred review
