Interesting concept, but the text is awkward.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689847289, Hardcover)

If you listen,
you may hear Catilda
singing sadly.
She misses
her teddy bear, Ollie,
whom she's lost
on a trip to the city.

If you listen,
you will hear
her parents creeping
up the stairs,
talking about the child
they have put
snugly to bed.

They hear only silence.

If you watch,
you will see everything
those parents
don't suspect --
everything
that a child's love
for a teddy bear
can lead to.

John Stadler
has told his loving story
with the lightest
of touches
and painted it
with the lightness
of air.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:19:30 -0400)

While her parents think she is asleep, a cat roams the world in search of her lost teddy bear.
