Synopsis

Lost. Found. by Marsha Diane Arnold

On a cold day, a bear loses his soft red scarf. The wind carries it *whoosh* to a couple of playful raccoons who find it and use it to play tug-o-war. Once they run off, the scarf is abandoned until a woodchuck finds it and decides it will make the perfect warm hat. It gets stuck on a tree branch only to be found and lost again by a fox, a mouse and s a couple of squirrels among others. When all the animals lay claim to the scarf, calamity ensues that can only be fixed by a bear, a little patience, and friendship in this nearly wordless, clever picture book.

Reviews

The way the animals make things right with the scarf's original owner adds sweetness to the mix, but it's the giggly impulsiveness of the forest's wildlife that provides the entertainment-the effect is half nature documentary, half Marx Brothers. --Publishers Weekly, starred review The attention to detail and the expressions displayed on the animals
