Dear Librarians,

Zogby always knew he wanted to deliver cookies for the Fluffy Tail Cookies Company — and at last he lands his dream job. But Zogby, a large bear, doesn't fit in with the fleet of adorable delivery bunnies. Each time he rings a doorbell and sings the cookie delivery song, he terrifies the customers! Will wearing bunny ears and a fluffy tail help Zogby fit in? Or can Zogby find a way to stand out and keep his job?

My favorite part of working on this book was writing the cookie delivery songs. These songs will make the book an extra fun read-aloud. I hope the messages of following your dreams, not giving up, and standing out instead of fitting in will resonate with readers as well.

If you love cookies, bears, or bear hugs, you will love DELIVERY BEAR!
