Owen the mouse and Fuzzy the blanket have been constant companions for a lifetime. "Fuzzy goes where I go," Owen asserts. And Fuzzy does with little fuss or bother until nosy Mrs. Tweezers from next-door comments that Owen is too old to cling to a security blanket. With their neighbor's helpful advice, Owen's parents try every trick in the book to separate the two, but Owen always manages to outsmart them. The situation seems hopeless until Owen's mother comes up with a solution that makes everyone happy. Black pen and watercolor paintings add touches of humor to the marvelously plotted, skillfully worded story with universal appeal for the little mouse in all of us. (Ages 3-8)
