An all-new original graphic novel by the author of The New York Times-bestselling series Dear Dumb Diary.
Dog Man author Dav Pilkey says: "Jim Benton is a comic genius and a brilliant cartoonist!"
When Clyde the bear decides to ditch his safe and peaceful life in Cubville and head off for the mean streets of Grizzly City he learns, with the help of a reformed juvenile delinquent butterfly, the Bad Life isn't always so great, and there's something to be said for helping your friends and family even though that really does kind of stink a little.
