"The picture book crowd is often spellbound by stories of lost teddy bears, and this delightful book is just such a tale."--BOOKLIST Yikes! Eddie's in for the surprise of his life when he discovers that his teddy bear has grown much too big to cuddle! But there's fun in store when Eddie meets up with a real bear who has just the opposite problem. Could it be a case of mistaken identity? This fast-paced comedy of errors, illustrated with Jez Alborough's quirky artwork, is guaranteed to have children--and bears alike--looking very closely at their teddies!
