Owen had a fuzzy yellow blanket. He'd had it since he was a baby. He loved it with all his heart. (from the first line)
Owen is attached to his fuzzy yellow blanket--and he won't give it up. But when school starts, Owen's mother knows just what to do. Full color. 1994 Caldecott Honor Book.
From the Publisher:
Owen had a fuzzy yellow blanket. Mrs. Tweezers, who lived next door, thought Owen was too old for a blanket. "Haven't you heard of the blanket fairy?" she asked Owen's parents. They hadn't, so Mrs. Tweezers filled them in. Then school started, but this time Owen's mother knew just what to do--and everyone, even Mrs. Tweezers, was happy. Full color. 1994 Caldecott Honor Book.

Owen had a fuzzy yellow blanket. "Fuzzy goes where I go," said Owen. But Mrs. Tweezers disagreed. She thought Owen was too old for a blanket. Owen disagreed. No matter what Mrs. Tweezers came up with, Blanket Fairies or vinegar, Owen had the answer. But when school started, Owen't mother knew just what to do, and everyone -- Owen, Fuzzy, and even Mrs. Tweezers -- was happy.

Owen the toddler is very attached to Fuzzy, his yellow security blanket. When a neighborhood busybody suggests that Owen is too old to carry around a security blanket, he panics. Will Owen's parents really separate him from Fuzzy? Illustrated with watercolor drawings.Dealing with a common childhood trauma, OWEN is the story of a toddler-aged mouse who is quite attached to Fuzzy, his yellow security blanket. Owen does everything with Fuzzy, from eating his breakfast, to playing in the yard, to visiting the dentist; a situation that doesn't bother Owen's parents--until a nosey neighbor named Mrs. Tweezers says, "Isn't he getting a little old to be carrying that thing around?" Now determined to separate their son from Fuzzy, Owen's parents do all they can to get Owen to give up his security blanket. Owen, however, outwits them every time. As Mrs. Tweezers continues to provide misguided advice, Owen and his family eventually find a way to solve the "Fuzzy situation" to everyone's satisfaction. Illustrated with watercolor and black ink illustrations, OWEN is a 1994 Caldecott Honor Book.
