Bam and Kero's Sunday

Yuka Shimada’s Bam and Kero series is an immensely popular picture book series starring two unlikely friends: a responsible dog named Bam, and Kero, a small, mischievous frog. On a rainy Sunday, Bam wants nothing more than to clean the house and settle down with a good book. As he’s finishing tidying up, his friend Kero comes back from playing outside, tracking mud everywhere. After cleaning up both Kero and the house, Bam and Kero look for a new book in the attic. But something is up there that scares them away. Together, they’ll have to devise a plan to get their book out of the attic.
