Perfect for fans of Salina Yoon, this young picture book series--featuring four adorable friends--focuses on relatable social/emotional learning topics and is brought to life by bestselling illustrator Zachariah OHora.
While playing Hide and Seek with his friends, Sonny finds a box. It has a label on it that says "Do not open." But Sonny really wants to know what's inside. He pokes the box. Sniffs the box. And when Boo and Meemo come along, Sonny says "Look!" He opens the box, and they peek inside. CAKE!
"Yummy!" says Boo. It looks so good, they can't help it. They eat it.
But when Honey comes by, she sees Sonny and Meemo and Boo's chocolatey hands and faces. "That was my cake!" she cries. What will Sonny and his friends do?

“An all-too-relatable tale--with a delightful ending and a solid lesson--that will appeal to preschoolers. . . . Just the thing to help children deal with making a mistake--and amends.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Hart's playful, repetitive text winningly recalls Mac Barnett's Jack books. OHora's bright digital art, often presented against monochrome backgrounds and augmented by colorful speech bubbles, keeps the focus on the expressive characters. A solid conversation opener for discussions on sharing and empathy.” —Publishers Weekly on SONNY SAYS MINE!
“Entertaining and instructive, this will be a useful preschool discussion starter.” —Booklist on SONNY SAYS MINE!
