Quiet adventures that display the joys of finding something, or someone, you have lost are out there but sometimes they’re hard to recall. Hopper and Wilson is easy to remember after you’ve read it, though. I know that the next time a parent walks into my children’s room at the library and asks for good picture book bedtime fare or books that “feel like classics” I’ll have this little number right at hand. Sweet in the best possible sense, these are two animals that are certain to garner more friends in their readers. A lovely book.

Hopper the elephant and Wilson the mouse wonder one day what exactly they might find at the end of the world. Determining that there’s a good chance of finding lemonade there, the two set out in a little boat with only a red balloon for company. Along the way they are caught up in a sudden squall and the two friends are separated. Wilson searches high and low for Hopper, until at last a friendly bird leads the two to one another. Continuing their journey (minus one red balloon) they find themselves back at their old dock. The end of the world is also the beginning. And for that the two of them could not be happier.
