“I was going to draw, but my blue pencil was missing. It was lost! Where do all the lost things go?” A young boy’s search for his misplaced pencil leads him to wonder where all the lost things go.

When he looks inside his pencil box he sees a slim ray of light, and his imagination sends him through the opening and into an unknown world in search of his pencil. Soon he finds himself in the Land of Lost Things!

He enters through the Forest of Lost Blue Pencils, where the sun is setting. But it isn’t the sun; it’s a golden button he lost a long time ago. He finds lots of other things he has lost as he wanders, following the path to the Mountain of Lost Mittens, through the Garden of Lost Umbrellas and to the Island of Lost Stuffed Animals.

Argentine artist and arts educator Dina Bursztyn’s inventive story is enlivened by her whimsical, colorful gouache, collage and pen-and-ink illustrations in this charming, magical book that explores the power of the imagination. Children ages 4-8 will delight in one boy’s fanciful journey through a strange and mysterious land.
