    Book Description:
    Where could Bongo be? Help a young boy find his beloved toy—and figure out how he got lost to begin with.

    The boy knows Bongo was right there with him this morning—but suddenly, Bongo is missing. He asks his whole family if they’ve seen the stuffed toy. Yo no s e, says abuela, I don’t know.

    Mom and Dad haven’t seen him either. And Gato just meows and runs away.

    When he finds Bongo, the boy is thrilled—but he still doesn’t understand how his toy ended up there. So he sets a trap to catch the Bongo thief… .

    Eric Velasquez’s detailed, expressive illustrations follow the boy’s investigation throughout his home, giving a glimpse at a warm, multi-generational family.
