Owen - Book Review

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Owen by Kevin Henkes is about a little mouse who loves his fuzzy yellow blanket. He does everything with his fuzzy friend. Owen eats and sleeps with Fuzzy. Owen loves Fuzzy, his baby blanket.

There is one small problem. Owen is starting kindergarten soon. He cannot take Fuzzy to school. His parents try several things to separate Owen from Fuzzy. The nosy neighbor, Mrs. Tweezers, offers many suggestions. They are unsuccessful.

Finally, Owen’s mother finds a solution. She makes many Fuzzies by dividing Fuzzy into little fuzzy handkerchiefs. Owen can take a little Fuzzy to school in his pocket. Everyone is happy!

The juvenile book is perfect for the little one unable to face separation from the baby blanket. Preschool and elementary kids will find that they are not the only one with separation problems. After reading the picture book, the child and parent can discover a way to solve the problem.

Kevin Henkes the author of Owen is a popular writer of childrens' story books. Owen is a Caldecott Honor Book.

Kevin Henkes is the artist of the book’s illustrations. He uses watercolors to depict Owen, his parents and nosy neighbor, Mrs. Tweezers. The pictures are as warm and fuzzy as Fuzzy.
