"Fuzzy goes where I go."

Owen's fuzzy yellow blanket is his favorite possession. Everywhere Owen goes, his blanket goes with him. Upstairs, downstairs, in-between. Inside, outside, upside down. Everywhere Owen's parents are in despair--soon Owen will begin school, and he can't take Fuzzy with him then. Whatever can be done?

This Caldecott Honor Book will provide reassurance and laughs whether shared at home or during circle time. Every child uses some sort of security object, whether it's a toy, a thumb, or a binky. For those not yet ready to let go and for those who have moved on, here's a story about making compromises that speaks to us all.

Everyone who's ever had a favorite blanket will know exactly how Owen feels
