  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2016 September #2
    Zagarenski enlightens young readers with an enchanted story of love and friendship between a young boy and his favorite toy. Though his family tries to tell him his beloved Leo isn't real, Henry and the plush lion are inseparable, and when he accidentally leaves Leo behind on a walk in the woods, the boy is disconsolate. Although his parents assure him they'll look first thing in the morning, Henry is still worried. But back in the woods, something magical takes place while Henry fitfully sleeps: in wordless spreads, Zagarenski's warm, lustrous, and whimsical multimedia paintings depict Leo conspiring with other forest denizens to find a way back home. The little lion's plight is clear, thanks to the animals' expressive forms and some visual hints, while the jewel-toned palette cultivates a welcoming, mystical atmosphere. The transition from Henry's story, rendered in simple text, to Leo's is seamless, and the sumptuous imagery is packed with delightful details, which are a pleasure to hunt for. Little ones will be entranced. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
