Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All great children's literature, from Alice's Adventures to Where the Wild Things Are, features wonderful characters who lead the reader on imaginative journeys of transformation. Teddy's World presents a poignant journey into the inner life of the dearest and most powerful icon of childhood. A beautifully designed book for all ages, Teddy's World features 200 full-color photomontages of the teddy bear's world that are sometimes surreal, sometimes super-real, and always witty and original. The playful text — which follows Teddy's rough-and-tumble times through the ups and downs of love and loss, joy and trauma — invites readers to explore their own emotional attachment to Teddy. This sumptuous visual tour is a fitting tribute to the teddy bear.

Review:

"The vintage bears have a refreshingly handmade look in an age of machine-made fluorescent and electric toys....The pithily captioned tableaux have been composed with thought, care and humor." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"[A] fantasy picture book with large color photographs of teddies posed in a variety of action and landscape settings....[A] fun book." Library Journal
