Publishers Weekly Review
Teddy Bear of the Year
(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
VanSickle takes teddy bears' work seriously in this fanciful story. Ollie, who is on the clock beginning "weekdays at three," loves his gig as a teddy bear. One night, a ship arrives outside his girl's window, and a grizzled teddy escorts Ollie to a fairy-like setting deep in the woods: his first-ever teddy bears' picnic, featuring new friends, sweets, and even "bearaoke." When a ceremony recognizing "excellence in teddy-care" begins, Ollie fears he's too "ordinary" to be acknowledged but soon receives the "Teddy Bear of the Year" award for excelling at the teddy-care ABCs ("Always Be Cuddling"). VanSickle amuses with on-the-job lingo, and Hanson's enchanted scenes highlight teddies' ability to comfort. Ages 3--7. (Jan.)
