Very Cool Holiday Story,
This review is from: Where Teddy Bears Come From (Hardcover)
"In the middle of a deep, dark forest, all the creatures were fast asleep except for a little gray wolf, who tossed and turned and couldn't sleep a wink. Mother wolf gave him a glass of milk and a cuddle. Then she tucked him in and read his favorite teddy bear story three times in a row. But it was no good. The little wolf stayed wide awake..." -- From Where Teddy Bears Come From
With font and artwork reminiscent of Lauren Child (Charlie and Lola), Where Teddy Bears Come From written by Mark Burgess and illustrated by Russel Ayto offers a yummy feast for both the eyes and the ears.
When she cannot answer her son's question, Mother Wolf sends him into the forest to ask Wise Owl to discover where teddy bears come from.
Trouble is, he doesn't know. So he sends little wolf to the Three Little Pigs. Unfortunately, little wolf lets off a big sneeze right outside their door...
Traveling through a fairytale forest--asking familiar characters like Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks where teddy bears come from--little wolf finally bumps into an old man bending down beside a big red truck...
Well, let's just say that little wolf definitely finds out where teddy bears come from...and gets one for Christmas!
The colorful artwork and unusual perspectives in this book are stunning; some illustrations actually look 3D with trompe l'oeil effects. The story is enganging and the varied fonts are delighful. Truly, this hardcover book is a holiday treasure for children 4-8!
