The "too-cool-for-school" third picture book from the #1 New York Times bestselling creators of The Bad Seed and The Good Egg, Jory John and Pete Oswald

Everyone knows the cool beans. They're sooooo cool.

And then there's the uncool has-bean . . .

Always on the sidelines, one bean unsuccessfully tries everything he can to fit in with the crowd--until one day the cool beans show him how it's done.

With equal measures of humor, wit, and charm, the #1 New York Times bestselling duo Jory John and Pete Oswald craft another incredible picture book, reminding us that it's cooler to be kind.

Reviews

Cool beans indeed.--Kirkus Reviews
Oswald's pipe-stemmed limbs, googly eyes, and accessories give these anthropomorphic legumes lots of personality.--Kirkus Reviews
John's good-hearted text makes [hay] with the bean puns...--Kirkus Reviews
This is a gentle, sweet story of how generosity and kindness are the true qualities to champion, and offers a great example for young readers and an important reminder for older readers. A strong addition to any collection.--School Library Journal (starred review)
as character-driven, pun-filled, and hilariously illustrated as its predecessors.--Booklist
The last line [drives] the message home: all kids can be cool if they're kind.--Booklist
