Lost by the child who loves him, a devoted teddy bear begins an amazing seaside journey home that involves an ocean swim, a flight with seagulls and a sailor’s assistance. By the award-winning author of Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!
The illustrations and text in this book are both fantastic. I love the watercolor illustrations, particularly the style of the illustrated frames on the left-hand pages when each new actor in the story is introduced (i.e. “this is the seal who…”) The parallel structure for much of the book (i.e. “this is the …”) is fun to read, and combined with the excellent rhyming keeps the story clipping right along and it’s a fantastically enjoyable book to listen to being read aloud.
