LITTLE CHEETAH’S SHADOW is missing. When Little Cheetah finds him and learns that Little Shadow is sad because he never gets to go first, Little Cheetah is happy to switch places. As they travel about their neighborhood, Little Cheetah is surprised to learn how hard it can be to follow. Eventually they decide that walking side-by-side is much better, and when they go through a scary tunnel on the way home, they discover they can face the dark together. Little Cheetah’s Shadow is a sweettale of friendship, empathy, and the importance of seeing things from a different perspective, rendered in Marianne Dubuc’s warm and inviting illustrations.
