Owenby Kevin Henkes
Synopses & Reviews
Owen had a fuzzy yellow blanket. "Fuzzy goes where I go," said Owen. But Mrs. Tweezers disagreed. She thought Owen was too old for a blanket. Owen disagreed. No matter what Mrs. Tweezers came up with, Blanket Fairies or vinegar, Owen had the answer. But when school started, Owen't mother knew just what to do, and everyone — Owen, Fuzzy, and even Mrs. Tweezers — was happy.
Owen is attached to his fuzzy yellow blanket--and he won't give it up. But when school starts, Owen's mother knows just what to do. Full color. 1994 Caldecott Honor Book.
