Adele & Simon

When Adele walks her little brother Simon home from school he loses one more thing at every stop: his drawing of a cat at the grocery shop, his books at the park, his crayons at the art museum, and more. When Simon’s older sister, Adele, picks him up from school, he has his hat and gloves and scarf and sweater, his coat and knapsack and books and crayons, and a drawing of a cat he made that morning. Adele makes Simon promise to try not to lose anything. But as they make their way home, distractions cause Simon to leave something behind at every stop.
