Synopsis

Red Ted and the Lost Things by Michael Rosen

With bravery, teamwork and lots of common sense, a forgotten bear finds his way home in this warm, wise and very funny graphic picture book by former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen and illustrated by Joel Stewart. One day, a little bear named Red Ted is accidentally left on the seat of a train by his owner Stevle and ends up in the place for lost things. He doesn't despair, however - he puts his mind to work! With the help of his new friends, a pessimistic crocodile and a cat with a fondness for cheese, Ted finds his way home to the little girl who loves and misses him. This is a sweet graphic storybook about pluck, persistence, and the pure comfort of home at the end of a long journey full of adventure.

Reviews

* A sweet lost and found tale, told from the point of view of the lost toys. Michael Rosen's text is as excellent as ever, and Joel Stewart's illustrations set the mood perfectly www.thebookbag.co.uk
