–a small press of many things–

Seabear Press is a small, multi-faceted press consisting of a husband and wife team. Kent and Erin Barnard live in a small village in Wisconsin, where Kent is the librarian, and Erin is an illustrator who works from her Tiki Room Studio at home. The Barnards have two wonderful (and definitely not spoiled), ginger rescue cats, Rocket and Robyn.


We are proud to have two picture books out now. Our first offering - smash hit Mom Needs a Dinosaur!, enchants children ages 2-7. Our second book - Rhino & Dino in: Juice! is the first in a funny new standalone series that will keep everyone ages 4+ laughing. Our third book – the second in the Rhino & Dino series – is scheduled to come out in the spring of 2022.


Use the menu at the top to find all sorts of fun from behind-the-scenes art, news and updates about our books, special merchandise, how to get The Barnards for events, reviews, and dino-mite activities, games, bookmarks, and more all done by Erin the illustrator for kids, librarians and teachers to print out and use. New things will be added from time to time so check back to ensure that you don't miss out! 

Sorry, we do not accept unsolicited queries, manuscripts or illustrations.
