1st edition. Square octavo, softbound, [32] pp. Black & white photos throughout. Very Good, with light edgewear.From book: Running away from home is very, very naughty. And Benjamin knew it. That's why he had decided to walk away from home. Somehow, walking away from home didn't seem nearly as naughty as running away from home. Benjamin, a cuddly teddy bear who belonged to a little girl named Missy, wanted to walk away from home because he thought it was time he had a home of his own. Missy's playhouse was entirely too tidy for Benjamin. Besides, he had to share the playhouse with a group of lacey, long-legged dolls and some stuffy stuffed animals who never wanted to play or do anything except sit and stare at him... [Benjamin thus ends up visiting a number of Cleveland landmarks, including Shaker Lakes Regional Nature Center, Sea World, Metroparks, Cavaliers Coliseum, Blossom Music Center, Chester Commons, Celeveland's Old Arcade, Lake Erie, Cuyahoga River, Heritage Park, Detroit-Superior bridge, Lorenzo Carter's log cabin, Justice Center, Cleveland Play House].
