About the Book

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.

Book Synopsis

"Fuzzy goes where I go."

Owen's fuzzy yellow blanket is his favorite possession. Everywhere Owen goes, his blanket goes with him. Upstairs, downstairs, in-between. Inside, outside, upside down. Everywhere! Owen's parents are in despair--soon Owen will begin school, and he can't take Fuzzy with him then. Whatever can be done?

This Caldecott Honor Book will provide reassurance and laughs whether shared at home or during circle time. Every child uses some sort of security object, whether it's a toy, a thumb, or a binky. For those not yet ready to let go and for those who have moved on, here's a story about making compromises that speaks to us all.

Everyone who's ever had a favorite blanket will know exactly how Owen feels!

From the Back Cover

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.

I wish I had known there were other Owen books also. Such a cute storyline. My babies were all blankie babies so this was perfect.
