From a New York Times bestselling author and Caldecott Honor artist comes the beloved story about nothing–and everything!–adapted to a board book format.

Mooch the cat desperately wants to get his friend Earl the dog a gift for the holidays, but Earl already has everything he needs. “What do you give a guy who has everything?” Mooch wonders. Then it dawns on him: nothing! But it turns out nothing is harder to find than you’d think…

This perennial favorite has sold hundreds of thousands of copies, and in this shortened form, brings to the youngest readers its heartfelt, timeless message about the priceless value of friendship.
