Waking from his nap, a child wants his mommy. Is she in the bathroom? Is she behind the curtains or in the garden? Is she in the refrigerator with the strawberry jelly? Where can she be?

"A story that subtly manages to defuse the common anxiety children harbor about being separated from Mom".--KIRKUS REVIEWS.
