From #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Bad Seed, Jory John, and illustrator Erin Kraan comes a meaningful yet utterly hilarious tale—a companion to the popular picture book, Something's Wrong!

It’s the perrrfect day for a picnic! But oh-no. Anders does not seem like himself.

He and his friend Jeff are headed for a spectacular afternoon together, but no matter how much Anders insists that he’s feeling just fine, Jeff gets the sense that his best friend isn’t being totally honest. Jeff doesn’t know what to do. Give him space? Stand by his side? Pretend that absolutely nothing’s wrong?? How can he be a good friend if he doesn’t know what Anders might need?

Nothing's Wrong! reminds us that even when things don’t turn out as planned, a good friend will be there for you no matter what.

"Imparts a gentle, satisfying message about the importance of a good friend." —Kirkus

"Readers will be laughing out loud while learning the dynamics of friendship from two very different perspectives... The charming characters will have readers rooting for all involved, especially when all the woodland creatures join in the fun. This book is a wonderful exploration of the complexities of friendship and the importance of understanding unspoken cues... A gentle reminder for all ages that life’s ups and downs can be shared, this book is a welcome addition to any elementary ­library." —School Library Journal

"A pie that plops, a mood that drops, and a friendship that never stops are the main ingredients of John’s latest zany adventure... [The illustrations] create a wonderfully textured, vivid world. A great resolution involves a picnic, many forest animals, and a resounding message about the power of always being there for your friends." —Booklist
