The Boy Who Thought He Was a Teddy Bear

Jeanne Willis

With a little help from three meddling fairies, a young human baby falls under the care of three roly-poly teddy bears, Big Teddy, Middle Teddy and Little Teddy. The teddy bears are eager to care for their new charge, but what do they really know of little boys?With only the best intentions and a lot of love, the bears set out to raise him, instructing him in the ways of teddy bears. Soon, the transition from boy to teddy is nearly complete. He dresses like a teddy. He sits on shelves and sleeps in cupboards. He walks like a teddy. And of course he is very cuddly.Then one day, a knock on the door turns his teddy bear world upside down. Now he must accept that he belongs to the human world. But will he still be able to sleep in cupboards, play in the woods, and go on picnics? Will he still be cuddly? The answer may lie in the big bear hug he gets from his loving mother.Illustrator Susan Varley's charming illustrations humorously depict the young boy's teddy bear antics in this gentle fairy tale with a reassuring ending.
