It mostly just collects fluff, but when it's missing...His belly button is gone, so our young hero goes into the jungle to look for it. He asks very animal he meets, but none of them has seen it. Does every animal have a belly button? So it seems. The elephant has a huge one. The mouse has a teeny one. The warthog has a warty one. And the crocodile... where did the crocodile get that little pink belly button, anyway? The Boy Who Lost His Belly Button is a bright and funny book that's perfect for reading aloud to any young owner of a belly button.
