Summer 2018 Kids Indie Next List

“It’s important to let children know that life isn’t so bad and things will get better, but it’s equally important to make sure they know that it’s okay not to be happy ALL of the time. I’m Sadis a funny and surprisingly sweet examination of those days when you wake up and just aren’t at your most cheerful. Sometimes you’re just sad and that’s okay—it’s even a little nice.  ”
— Amy Brabenec, Brookline Booksmith, Brookline, MA


A girl, a potato, and a very sad flamingo star in this charming sequel to I’m Bored by New York Times bestselling author and comedian Michael Ian Black and celebrated illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi.

Everyone feels sad sometimes—even flamingos.


When Flamingo announces he’s feeling down, the little girl and Potato try to cheer him up, but nothing seems to work. Not even dirt! (Which usually works for Potato.)

Flamingo learns that he will not always feel this way. And his friends learn that sometimes being a friend means you don’t have to cheer someone up. You just have to stick by your pal no matter how they feel.

Even if they’re a potato.
