In the Woods by Christopher Wormell

One day, three teddy bears called Bubba, Rollo and Pog set off into the woods for a picnic. Bubba is the tallest, Rollo is the fattest and Pog is the smallest. Before too long they are utterly lost and Rollo has eaten all their food. But at least there are no wolves to attack them in these woods ...or are there?
