Hello. My name is Willy and my favorite stuffed animal is a sock monkey I call Bobo. Now it is important to understand that Bobo and I do everything together. We go to the playground and play on the slide and Bobo holds my hand when we walk past the house with the big dog that looks over the fence.

Bobo doesn't like raisins in his oatmeal so I have to pick them out and he likes to watch me color and play with my blocks. When I sleep or take a nap, Bobo always snuggles up next to me. Bobo and I are really close.

There's only one problem. My cat Earl also really likes Bobo. So when Bobo disappears, and he disappears a lot, I have to find that silly cat because, more than likely, he has snatched my monkey. If I put Bobo down for a just few minutes and turn my back, what happens? He disappears!

'Hey Earl!' I shout. I know that if I find the cat I'll also find Bobo.

This picture book shows how it can be difficult if more than one person (or a boy and a critter) love the same toy. If you own a cat you know that sometimes it can be really possessive and it borrows your things. It is kind of funny in a way, but that darn Earl does make me mad sometimes!
