The Boy Who Lost His Bellybutton
One day a little boy loses his bellybutton, so he sets off into the jungle to find it. On the way he meets lots of animals, who each have their own bellybuttons. But it seems that somebody has stolen the little boy's, and they may not be so eager to give it back!
This classic picture book from Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross is now available in paperback.
"The spread in which the boy tentatively wades naked into the swamp to retrieve his navel has a cinematic-like tension . . . Ross's luxuriant crayon and pastel landscape manages to evoke both the heat and exoticness of the setting." "--Publishers Weekly"
