This Big Book edition is perfect for sharing with groups of children.

As Eddy begins his search for Freddy the Teddy, the tale subtly shifts from reality to an enchanting fantasy tightly packed with a wit and humour that will stay long in the memory. Bright, bold illustrations coupled with a simple, rhyming text that will withstand endless repetition, make this a sure-fire favourite for the little ones in your life.

This story is wonderful - I first read this to my son when he was 1.5 and now he is 5 and still loves the wonderful rhyming text. I now have a baby who is one year old and he loves the bold illustrations and when I can persuade him not to eat the book, he will listen to the story and jump at all the right times before dissolving into giggles. I have read this book at least 1,000 times and I still love it.

One of the best kid's book I've read. Both my kids have grown up on Eddies Teddy ! The pictures are wonderful and it's not long before a child knows the words and reads the story from memory with you. Great from 2 upwards.

This is SUCH a good book. My son (now 3 and a half) has loved it since he was quite little and I love it too. The story is great and the rhymes are good too.

I love it when he picks this one to read at bedtime - it's a book that really is enjoyable to read, read, read, read and read again.

Great book. The pop-up version is probably best. Smaller than the other but the added dimension has been enjoyed by my 2 year old (though beware if your kid is used to lift flap books you do need to stop them pulling it apart accidentally). The story is about a child who loses his bear in the woods but when he goes looking he finds a giant teddy bear (and assumes his bear has grown). It turns out the giant teddy belongs to a giant bear who is also confused about how his bear has shrunk so much. The rhyming is great and the story just the right length for a 1-4 year old.

My children just can't get enough of Eddy and his teddy. Jez Alborough is a wonderful rhyming storyteller. This has been a favourite now with my children for a long time. All children should have it!

My little boy's favourite book. The rhyming couplets really appeal to him. He is only 8 months old but as soon as I pick up THIS book, he gets really excited. He giggles along at certain lines and it never fails to settle him down.
Just brilliant.

Storyline - A story about Eddy losing his teddy and him looking in the woods to find him. But in the wood it is dark and scary. Eddy then comes across a giant teddy bear, that’s too big to fit in his bed. Eddy hears strange noise and sobs behind the huge teddy. A gigantic bear then comes out of the woods holding Eddy’s teddy and coming towards the huge teddy. The bear leans down to his teddy to pick him up, revealing little Eddy and dropping Eddy’s teddy. They both run off in opposite directions and snuggle up in their beds.

Early Years Teachers - This book proved to be an invaluable resource on my teaching placements. As expected with this well known author Jez Alborough, this is a great book with a good story line. It is so versatile and can be enjoyed by many ages. It is really easy to engage with.

Themes: bears, emotions, being lost, friends.

Activity ideas:
- Children mind map other words for giant and try to use them in their work.
- Children could discuss their favorite teddies.
- Children could have a teddy bears picnic with their favorite teddies.
- Children could look at the woods picture and try to guess what may happen.
- Children could discuss how Eddy must have felt when he lost his teddy and this could relate to their experiences of losing something.
- Children could discuss why the bear and Eddy ran away from each other at the end. Were they scared of each other? Why were they sacred of each other?

This book was bought for my youngest daughter several years ago. I totally agree with the previous reviewer's comments that it is for older children, we started reading it when my daughter was 4. To this day, all of my children can quote the entire series word for word, as can I.

The book details Eddie's search for his teddy, Freddy after he was accidentally left behind in the woods. Unbeknown to Eddy, Bear has also lost his teddy and is searching at the same time......

The book is written as a poem and is brilliant and funny, a real treat for parents getting a little tired of Cinderella and Tigerella with some real scope for fun and tension. this is a wonderful and much loved book and invokes some wonderful and very special childhood memories for myself and my children.

I would also highly recommend "It's the Bear!" - our favourite of the series.
