Our Review Panel says...

Nominated for Favourite Books of 2018 by: Kate Scott (@KateScottWriter), author of children’s books including Giant (available here) and Just Jack (available here) and also by Jayne Gould (@JayneG60), Primary School Librarian Kate says: “A classic in the making, this is a warm, funny and poignant story about a teddy which has been loved into a state of dilapidation. Reminiscent of The Velveteen Rabbit, this is very much its own book and is pitch perfect in tone and message. A perfect marriage of words and pictures, this is a completely charming and enchanting book.” Jayne says: “Stripy Ted is a very special bear, accompanying his young owner on all sorts of adventures. But these have taken their toll, and poor Ted is rather worn out and missing quite a few parts. This doesn’t matter at all, he is still just as loved as is clear in this utterly charming, tender and heart-warming picture book tale.”
