Patchwork Goes Under Cover

Illustrated by Jacqueline Schmidt and text by Benjamin Mott

The escapades of the patchwork bear whose good nature, taste for travel, and do-it-yourself talents have earned fans around the globe; now Patchwork is back for a second set of adventures. In Patchwork Goes Under Cover, the resourceful bear seeks a quiet spot to sleep. With an unquenchable thirst for the unknown, Patchwork encounters butterflies, penguins, and wild bears looking for their own restful places.

The lilting prose and dreamy scenes will help lull even the liveliest children into their own soothing states. Jacqueline's exquisitely detailed collages, featuring whimsical birds and floating whales, encourage repeated readings. Patchwork Goes Under Cover is a wonderfully rendered bedtime book sure to strengthen the parent-child bond at the beginning stages of literacy.
