Bruce the bear is back and this time with a healthy dose of skepticism around spring. With classic Ryan T. Higgins humor and illustrations, Ruth the bunny is on a mission to change Bruce’s mind — but will she be successful? Bruce and friends are always in season, so this is a perfect storytime read all year round.
Ruth the bunny is excited to share the smelly springtime smells of spring with Bruce! But what will Bruce think of all that stink?
"Higgins' sparse text is humorously juxtaposed with his signature, detail-packed, engaging illustrations. The mouse-sized treehouse and the despondent, dripping moose are especially delightful. Bruce's unibrow is practically a protagonist in and of itself. Ruth's exuberance plays off Bruce's disgruntledness like a sweet pear off gorgonzola." Kirkus Reviews
