From the New York Times best-selling creator of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and Steam Train Dream Train, Tom Lichtenheld, comes a laugh-out-loud story of a runaway teddy bear's secret life, now available in a sturdy board book edition.

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. This sturdy board book edition is perfect for the youngest of readers.

Praise For…

★ "Like a faithful teddy, sure to become a favorite for many readers."—Kirkus, STARRED review   "Lichtenheld’s first-person narration is just the right amount of cranky, rendering Louis as both sympathetic (he does get thrown in the washing machine, after all) and clueless as to how good he has it."—Publishers Weekly   "Rowan-Zoch’s colorful and expressive illustrations complement Lichtenheld’s silly story and truly bring Louis the grumpy bear to life.... Perfect for read-alouds or one-on-one sharing, this is a laugh-out-loud spin on a would-be runaway’s best-laid plans."—School Library Journal   "A cheeky reminder to kids to show a little care to what they might be taking for granted."—BCCB
