Bossy Bear: He wants everything HIS way!

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. But who gives a crap about him when there's Bossy Bear?!

Bossy Bear, the little blue bear clad in a red cape with a crown upon his noggin, comes from the insanely creative mind of David Horvath, co-creator of Uglydolls. Bossy Bear is his picture book debut. Woo-hoo!
The story is about a bear who is, uh, bossy. He wants everything HIS way, and he wants it NOW! This book will have readers recognizing - and laughing at - their own bossy tendencies, or so Barnes & Noble says. They also said that this book is targeted towards infants and preschool kids -- but that isn't stopping me from getting a copy! We're all kids at heart anyways, aren't we?

And to add more fun to the hoopla that is Bossy Bear, there's going to be four, count 'em FOUR, vinyl figures!

You can get Bossy Bear looking this way, that way, sideways, and front ways. What fun! I think I like him looking that way. I'm not sure when those bossy boys are coming out, but the book is to be released in May.

For those in the Los Angeles area, you can see (and hear) David do a reading at the Los Angeles Festival of Books tomorrow (Sunday 29th):

Reading: 12:10pm - 12:30pm

Signing: 12:30pm - 1:30pm

and another signing at the Borders booth from 3:00pm - 4:00pm

If you're there, go see him!

Haha, I'm going to pick up the book too. You're never too old to enjoy a good old kid's book!
