A beloved teddy canbear it no longer and plots his escape from his owner’s sufocating affections in this laugh-out-loud picture book fromNew York Times best-selling creator ofGoodnight, Goodnight Construction Site andSteam Train Dream Trainfame, Tom Lichtenheld.

Louis the bear has had enough.

From day one, life has been one indignity after another. If he's not being used as a hankie, he's being hung out to dry—literally. (No one likes clothespins used on their ears!) This teddy is sneaking away just as soon as he can. Then again, no use running off in the rain . . .or during a show-and-tell routine. Maybe Louis has something to lose, after all.

This fresh and funny take on a teddy bear come to life is a salty and sweet, grumpy and tender, sly tribute to the ties that bind.
