About Mom Needs a Dinosaur!: "A hilarious and wonderfully-illustrated picture book guaranteed to delight young readers." — Karen McQuestion, author of Celia and the Fairies



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 introduce our first offering - our brand-new picture book for kids 2-7 years old: Mom Needs a Dinosaur!
