Review quote

...""The Legend of the Teddy Bear" is beautifully illustrated by Gijsbert Van Frankenhuyzen... This most recent book actually has the feel of an oil painting. Both tactile and visual, "Teddy Bear" comes alive with the vibrant colors of nature." -- "Chelsea Standard (Chelsea, MI)" (January 2003)
