Iver and Ellsworth; an old gentleman and an inflatable polar bear

Iver and Ellsworth

By Casey Robinson '96

"Words and pictures come together seamlessly, each enhancing the read-aloud experience. This comforting picture book is more than the sum of its parts." — Carolyn Phelan, Booklist

From a factory rooftop, Iver and his good friend Ellsworth (a rooftop bear) are content to watch the busy world below. "Everyone's going somewhere," Iver says. "We can see the whole world from up here. That's enough somewhere for me." But after Iver retires, the friends must venture out in search of a new somewhere. Of course, the very best views are those you share with an old pal.
