This large-size book is a heartwarming tale about the beginning of a special friendship. As Eddie, a lonely boy, wanders through the woods clutching his teddy bear, Freddie, he sees a large teddy that belongs to a bear that lives nearby. When he hears the huge animal approaching, Eddie hides behind the stuffed toy and pretends that it can talk. The excited bear enthusiastically grabs his teddy in his arms and discovers Eddie. The frightened boy breaks the tension by beginning to chuckle and soon they are laughing together. A wonderful read-aloud, this story will delight children, who will chime in with the rhyming words. Alborough's gentle watercolors portray the characters' feelings through both body language and facial expressions.
