This story has been recommended to me by several sources (sorry, I've forgotten what they were). A beloved red teddy, owned by a cheese-loving little girl, has been lost. Unlike the sad and depressed other lost things, Red Ted is determined to find his beloved Stevie again and takes a few friends along with him. Together, they brave dangers and explore the outside world until there is a joyous reunion for Red Ted and Stevie, a new home for Crocodile and cheese for the singing cat.

This graphic novel picture book is presented in panels and dialogue, although most panels are wordless. It's best suited for one-on-one reading, but I'm going to read it in storytime anyways, because I want to sing the cat's little song! The panels are in soft, washed-out colors, while the characters stand out brightly, which I think will make it easier for storytime listeners to follow the action.

Verdict: Recommended. A sweet story with intriguing illustrations

A very simple story about a teddy bear, left behind on a train by his owner, who finds his way home with the help of a stuffed crocodile and a cat.

The text is simple enough for an older 1st grader-2nd grade, and the images - rich colors and dark lines for the characters against a faded, washed out background - may help those unfamiliar with graphic novels to follow the characters through the story. ( )

I love this picture book! It has all the things I love: stuffed animals (including my personal favorite, a teddy bear!), real animals, train conductors, and cheese. What more could a reader ask for? I will definitely be checking out the other works by one of Britain's Children's Laureates (2007-2009), Michael Rosen. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763645370, Hardcover)

With bravery, teamwork, and lots of common sense, a forgotten bear finds his way home in this warm, wise, and very funny graphic storybook.

One day, a little bear named Red Ted is accidentally left on the seat of a train. When he winds up on a high shelf in the place for lost things, he doesn’t despair — he puts his mind to work! With the help of new friends and the use of all their senses (including a certain fondness for cheese), Ted and pals are determined to find their way back to the little girl who loves and misses him. Author Michael Rosen and illustrator Joel Stewart offer a sweet graphic storybook about pluck, persistence, and the pure comfort of home.
