Ever since Henry was two, he and his teddy bear Leo have been inseparable. Then one day, during a walk in the woods, Leo disappears. After a search fails to find the bear, Henry's parents remind him that Leo is a toy, but the boy is sure that his friend will find his way home. Readers up to 7 can follow as Leo befriends a fox, an owl, a rabbit, and a very large bear, and after taking a break for some tea, they help Leo to return home for a poignant reunion with Henry. In her gorgeous mixed-media paintings, the Caldecott winning illustrator of Sleep Like a Tiger and Red Sings from Treetops: A Year in Colors uses richly layered colors and clever details to create an enchanted world.
