Barnaby Never Forgets

By Pierre Collet-Derby
Illustrated by Pierre Collet-Derby

Meet Barnaby, an unforgettable bunny (with a few blind spots)!

Barnaby has a very good memory. He remembers to brush his teeth and feed his grasshoppers, and he always, always remembers when it’s ice-cream night. So how can someone with such a good memory forget something so important? As Barnaby soon finds out, sometimes the thing that’s slipped your mind is right under your nose (or right above it). Lovable, scatterbrained Barnaby will win the hearts of adults and kids alike in Pierre Collet-Derby’s funny and familiar tale of remembering what you’ve forgotten — and learning to laugh at yourself.

  • A sheepish portrait of the forgetful, easily distracted person, young or old (or at least middle-aged).
  • Will appeal to the funny bones of Tony Fucille, Scott Menchin, Mo Willems fans.
  • An exciting and relative newcomer sporting a deft and nimble line, which suggests an exciting career about to unfold.
