Book: Where’s My Teddy?

Where’s My Teddy?
Jez Alborough
1992

This is a cute picture book about a little boy who goes looking in the woods for his lost teddy bear, only to find a giant teddy instead. The story is cute, and the end is funny, but the book felt rather unremarkable. The text is all rhyming and there are many rhymes in the book that feel decidedly forced. I would much rather the text not have rhymed.

The illustrations were cute, but very exaggerated, almost too much so. The style was extremely typical of picture books and thus it didn’t stand out as anything particularly special.

This is a cute book, but it’s not anything remarkable. I wouldn’t go out of my way to find this book, but I would read it to a child if it was around.
