It's a race to the finish as young Meto chases a motorcar through the African savanna. A girl is in that car, and she has forgotten her little bear. Meto must get it back to her! Taking a shortcut through the marshes, he comes upon his friends--Hippopotamus, Lion, Elephant and Giraffe. Can they help Meto return this strange little animal in time, before the girl flies off and leaves Africa forever?Illustrated with glowing watercolor paintings, Satomi Ichikawa's charming story celebrates the people and animals of the African savanna, and in the simple loss of a toy bear, reveals the humanity we share across the world, even with the youngest.
