Owen

Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes

“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?

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

A Caldecott Honor book.
