How far would you go to find your very best toy if it went missing? Join a timid jack-o'-lantern on an adventure through a spooky forest in this sweet and eerie wordless picture book!

Nighttime can be scary, especially when you don’t know what might be lurking in the dark. So this little jack-o'-lantern always keeps its favorite toy close by for comfort. But when a huge gust of wind separates them one day, the jack-o'-lantern must gather up bravery and set off on a journey—just as nighttime draws closer—to get its friend back.


Dan Misdea’s eye-catching artwork and charming story will remind readers that they can overcome most fears by trusting in themselves and finding the courage that lives inside their heart.
