I Must Have Bobo! by Eileen Rosenthal - ADVISABLE

Rosenthal, Eileen I Must Have Bobo! illustrated by Marc Rosenthal 40 pg. Atheneum, 2011. PICTURE BOOK. $14.99. Did you ever have a favorite something whether it was a stuffed animal, blanket, or toy that you  just couldn't live without? In this case, it is Bobo. Little boy Willy does absolutely everything with his stuffed monkey, Bobo. But when he wakes up one morning to find that Bobo is missing, there is trouble! Laugh along as Willy searches for Bobo while we find out that Earl, the cat, is just as fond of Bobo.
This is a very simple book with simple text and pictures. I'm not a huge fan of the retro, bare-minimum illustrations, but they add humor to the story that kids will love. I can imagine that kids (and adults!) would love this book as they could relate to having a special something. Pre-K/EL(K-3)- ADVISABLE. Whitney, Library-Teacher.
