  • Hey He's My Uncle Buttons!: B Who U R

    Robert Hahn

    language (, May 25, 2020)
    This is a book about the misguided fear of a small boy named Brian. Its like the fear of Santa when you go to the mall and see him for the first time. Hes big and round and unknown to you, but once you see that he is friendly and jolly you are not scared anymore. Use that inner feeling that you get when you meet a stranger, some just don't give off that feeling that you should be afraid. Buttons and I never wanted anyone to be afraid of us. Thank you for letting us entertain you.
