Description

Leo isn't just a stuffed toy, he is Henry's best friend and brother. He is as real as a tree, a cloud, the sun, the moon, the stars, and the wind. But when the two are accidentally separated, no one in Henry's family believes Leo is real enough to find his way home.
With beautiful mixed-media paintings, the Caldecott Honor-winning artist Pamela Zagarenski explores the transcendent nature of friendship and love.

Amazon, Overall Top 20 Children's Books of 2016

* "The stunning, sumptuous artwork and familiar themes make this a serene and satisfying bedtime story for young children..."
--School Library Journal, STARRED review

"Little ones will be entranced."
--Booklist

* "...hauntingly lovely wordless spreads..."
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED review

"Zagarenski's mixed-media, edge-to-edge art is richly textured, jewel-toned, and dreamily evocative, with a delicious sense of mystery and enchantment... Invite young readers to talk about this visual feast for the imagination, and something magical may happen."
--Kirkus

* "The interplay between what is real and what is imaginary--and Henry's thoughts on the subject--will make this a fertile book for children and adults to discuss."
--Horn Book, STARRED review
