Writer/artist David Horvath’s Bossy Bear (Hyperion; 2007) is unquestionably a children’s picture book, but it’s one of those that is somewhat near the border to comics. Most of the words are in prose, but they are very short bursts of words, floating above the images. The dialogue, what little of it there is, appears in comic book-style dialogue balloons. And while the pages aren’t broken into panels, if we accept each page as a panel unto itself, well, this could very easily be considered a comic.
Either way, it’s pretty awesome, even for those of us who long ago learned that no one likes someone who’s too bossy, and that we should share stuff with others.
