When Emma's grandfather, Old Bob, is given a teddy bear, she sees immediately that he is not going to love the bear as much as she would. So soon she persuades Old Bob to 'lend' her the bear, a loan that lasts a very long time. When Emma eventually tires of the bear and Old Bob finds it again he realises that now indeed he can treasure this favourite toy. A delightful ode to the powers of a well-loved toy.show more

"A little girl watches her grandfather, Old Bob, receive a teddy bear for his birthday . . .

A great read for grandparents and grandchildren." - "Booklistshow more
