Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Given its mistaken identities and characters meandering through the woods, this irresistible bedtime story is faintly reminiscent of certain Shakespearean comedies and the cartoonlike characters in Calvin and Hobbes. When little Eddie braves the "dark and horrible" woods to look for his lost teddy bear Freddie, he confuses a real bear's giant teddy with his own. "How did you get to be this size?" he asks. Elsewhere in the woods, the real bear is sobbing over Eddie's Freddie, thinking his own teddy bear has shrunk. Alborough ( Beaky ) cleverly plots the confrontation scene as the real bear "stomps toward . . . the giant teddy and Eddie," and by book's end both real bear and Eddie are reassuringly tucked in their respective beds, "huddled and cuddled with their own little teds." Alborough's verse adroitly employs kid-pleasing rhythms and repetitions, while his watercolor, crayon and pencil drawings underscore the broad comedy of this perfectly satisfying scenario of scary fun. Ages 3-up.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-- Oversized pages covered with tall, leafy green trees set the stage for and reinforce the mood of this farcical tale of lost teddies. Reminiscent of McCloskey's Blueberries for Sal (Viking, 1948), the story tells of the mix-up of two stuffed toys, one belonging to a small boy and the other to a giant bear. The rhyming text will keep readers turning pages, while their fear of the unknown and the ensuing visual absurdity will keep them riveted. Although the real bear looms ominously large at first, he becomes less of a threat once it becomes clear that his only concern is his own teddy and not the trembling boy. Children will be reassured to find that creatures big and small need their steady comforts. --Martha Topol, Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City, MI

This book is a fantastic read for both child and adult. We bought it when my daughter was about 1 1/2 years old and she's just fascinated by the text and pictures. We use silly voices to tell the story and have fun looking at the pictures...if you look really hard you'll see lots of tiny animals peeking down from the trees! I missed those...the one year old is more observant! A gem!

This is my favorite book (I'm 3) and it has been one of my favorites for almost 2 years. I'm on my second copy since I ripped up the first one before I was very good at turning pages. Mom likes to read this book becasue the rhyme is nice and she makes the big bear's voice funny.

Highly recommended! This is one of our favorite books. We can recite it by heart. The pictures are really good (better in this story than the other ones for some reason- Eddy just looks weird in the others). It's the best of Alborough's bear books.

I just got this book last week for my 25-month-old and I can already tell it is destined to be one of our very favorites. It is just as much fun for me to read as it is for her to hear it! The illustrations and rhyming text are wonderfully amusing and my daughter squeals with delight when she sees the "little tiny bear". The contrast in the sizes of the bears is clever and it seems very reassuring to my daughter at the end when the bear and the boy both end up in their beds with the right teddy bears.

I used to work at a pre-school and this book was definitely a favorite among the children! I even bought myself a copy, in the hopes that when I have children of my own, I will be able to share this great, fun story with them!

Format: Paperback
This is such a funny book. If you love to laugh than you should buy. Even if you are 10 or 11 I think you will like this book. The boy lost his teddy and he decides to look for it in the forest. It is full of rhymes. the boy's name is eddie. His teddies name is freddie. Eddie and the bear get confused because their teddy bears look exactly a like except for their size. It is a great book.

My son likes this book and it's one I don't at all mind reading again and again. Beautiful artwork, cute rhymes, cute story. Not too wordy, great for one-year-olds and up. We saw this book at a friend's house and it's also featured in the Children's book of the month club. I highly recommend it.
