The Stray

Author: Gerard A. Pottebaum
Illustrator: Mary Jo Scandin

This inventive retelling of the parable of the lost sheep, is set in the context of ten children's unforgettable visit to the city zoo. In their adventure, they puzzle over how the elephant drinks through its nose. They lose track trying to count the leopard's spots and the zebra's stripes. When time comes to go home, they count each other's noses and discover someone is missing. Someone is lost. Their fear for the lost one turns to celebration when they discover more joy over the one who is found than over the nine who were never lost.
