Velasquez, Eric


Where could Bongo be? Help a young boy find his beloved toy—and figure out how it got lost to begin with.
Eric Velasquez's cozy and playful story is now available in Spanish.

The boy knows Bongo was right there with him this morning. But now, Bongo is missing. He asks his whole family if they've seen the stuffed toy.  "Yo no sé," says his abuela. "I don't know." 
Mamá and papá 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 that night, he sets a trap to catch the Bongo thief. . . .
Eric Velasquez's detailed, expressive illustrations follow the boy's investigation throughout his home, giving readers a glimpse of a warm, multi-generational familia Afro-Latina.
