Puffin Books, 2011. ISBN 978 0 14 3304227.
This is a quirky story about a teddy bear owned by a young boy named Oliver. Ted has an undercover life that causes great concern for Oliver. When Ted receives a letter from Papa Guru, Leader of the World Teddies Oliver knows Ted must embark on another mission. His goal is to rescue Talia, a rag doll who has been trapped in a cave guarded by a grizzly bear.
Teds adventures involve many diverse skills and place him in extreme danger at times. The text, sometimes in comic format, and the illustrations work well to explore the perils of Ted and the concerns of Oliver as this adventure unfolds. With ever page turn Ted is faced with increasing peril therefore encouraging the reader to keep reading to ensure the ending is a satisfying and safe one.
Another adventure of Ted is scheduled to be released soon.
