Finding Figgins

Finding Figgins is a delightful children’s picture book about the strength of friendship, illustrated in a colorful, magical- realism style by author and multi-media artist Shayna Leib.

Figgins is a lonely stuffed animal who feels forgotten by his human friend, Julian. Figgins has a rich, secret life unbeknownst to Julian in which he is a professor, a racecar driver and scuba diver. But when Figgins goes missing, Julian has to venture beyond his comfort zone into an unusual, magic world. By retracing Figgins’ steps, Julian begins to find out just who Figgins really is- all with the help of the Mrs. Z’s cats who know everything that goes on in their neighborhood.

A journey into the emotions of loss, loneliness, and bittersweet change, Finding Figgins is as touching as it is intricately and colorfully rendered. Adult readers will delight at the hidden visual easter eggs in this book, whether they like poetry, fast cars, or contemporary art as Finding Figgins reads on multiple levels for adults and children alike.

Recommended for readers 6 and up, and the adults who love them. Also recommended for anyone who loves cats and art!
