Description of this Book

Fans of classic toy stories like Winnie-the-Pooh by A. A. Milne, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo, and Toys Go Out by Emily Jenkins will love Teddy & Co. by Newbery Medalist Cynthia Voigt. Teddy is a thinking kind of bear. Of all his friends, he does the most wondering. He lives with a ragtag group of lost toys a very hungry snake, an elephant who likes to bake, two charmingly silly pigs, and a reclusive penguin and they all bump along happily together. But their peaceful world gets shaken up when new toys arrive first a rabbit, who is not as soft and floppy as he looks, and then a beautiful doll with royal ambitions. Will the newcomers learn to fit into the community? Or will the community be forever changed by them? As Teddy the philosopher would answer: Yes. Cynthia Voigt s charming tale of community and compromise comes alive in the adorable pictures from Paola Zakimi. Fully illustrated and lovingly designed, this book would make a terrific gift or family read-aloud.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review I love finding new early chapter books that treat young readers with respect. I can picture Teddy & Co. being read aloud by a family together or stealthily under the covers by one kid with a flashlight. Each lightly illustrated chapter functions well as its own short story and as a piece of the narrative whole. These are lovable and unique characters that will charm parents and children alike. -- Johanna Albrecht, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC
