Trixie is off to the Netherlands to visit Oma and Opa.  To her horror, she realizes after her arrival that she left her beloved Knuffle Bunny on the plane!  Trixie overcomes her sorrow by imagining all the places Knuffle Bunny will visit and all the children he will make happy.  When she finally discovers him on the return journey home, she is grown up enough to present him as a gift to the crying baby behind her. 

The conclusion (and arguably the best) of a series, and illustrated with color drawings over black and white photographed backgrounds, it is an easy favorite for any youngster (or parent) who has ever loved a toy.
