On a wintry day, a bear loses his soft red scarf. The wind carries it to a pair of raccoons who use it to play tug-o-war, and when they run off, a beaver dons the scarf as the perfect winter hat—until it gets tangled on a tree branch. As shown in Matthew Cordell's comical, highly energetic watercolor and ink illustrations, the scarf is lost and found by a series of animals, including a fox and a couple of rascally squirrels, who use it as everything from a swing to a trampoline. When all the animals lay claim to the bear's scarf at once, a calamity ensues that can only be fixed by a friendship and generosity, in this nearly wordless book for prereaders.
