Oh, no—Beaver is lost! Will he ever find his way back home?
In this nearly wordless picture book by Elisha Cooper, winner of a New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book award, a young beaver is accidentally separated from his family. Follow Beaver as he's chased by a dog, visits a zoo, and even finds himself in the middle of a busy city street.
In the vein of beloved classics like Flotsam and Good Night, Gorilla, this book is the perfect gift for future graphic novel enthusiasts. With luminous pencil-and-watercolor illustrations by an artist whose work the New York Times has called "simple and quiet and essentially perfect," Beaver Is Lost is sure to delight animal lovers everywhere.
