This book talks about a scarf that is lost and found several times. A bear loses his scarf. Two raccoons find it, play with it and then fight over it. A beaver finds it and wraps it around his head as a turbant; the turbant gets caught in a tree. A ferret uses it as a swing to get in the water, but after he dives, a fox finds it and tries to dry it up in the sun. Then she forgets about it, and three mice find it hanging between trees and use it as a trampoline. When they bounce off of it and to the ground, two prairie dogs and use it as net to play throwing pine cones across the scarf. Two squirrels attack them throwing pine cones from above the trees and take it, to use it as a bouncy slide across the trees, until the scarf flies away and all animals see it and want it. While fighting for it, they shred it to pieces. The scarf seems lost again and forever, but all animals put together the yarn and knit a new scarf. They use it to tie everyone together in a circle around a campfire.
This book was quite funny. The pictures of the animals were cute and all action drawings made me laugh. I also learned that there is always a way for people to share something without destroying it or losing it.
