On a cold day, a bear loses his soft red scarf. The wind carries it *whoosh* to a couple of playful raccoons who find it and use it to play tug-o-war. Once they run off, the scarf is abandoned until a woodchuck finds it and decides it will make the perfect warm hat. It gets stuck on a tree branch only to be found and lost again by a fox, a mouse and a couple of squirrels among others.
When all the animals lay claim to the scarf, calamity ensues that can only be fixed by a bear, a little patience, and friendship in this nearly wordless, clever picture book.
