About the Book
Bizzy Bones and the Lost Quilt is a story of Bizzy losing his favorite quilt. Uncle Ezra tries to suggest a replacement but Bizzy knows that nothing can replace the quilt he takes with him everywhere he goes and must have before he can sleep at night. They look for the lost quilt until Bizzy is so sad he walks straight into a Canada thistle. Uncle Ezra doesn’t know what to do but the Orchard Mice have a solution.
