Teddy & Co.

Teddy & Co.

by Cynthia Voigt

Teddy, an inquisitive legless bear, lives on a small island along with a group of other lost toys–a very hungry snake, an elephant who likes to bake, two charmingly silly pigs, and a reclusive penguin. This rag tag crew bumps along happily together–exploring the island, watching the waves, munching on muffins. But this peaceful idyll gets shaken up when new lost toys arrive–first a rather manipulative rabbit and then a beautiful doll with royal ambitions. Will the newcomers learn to fit into the community? Or will the community be forever changed by them? As Teddy the philosopher would answer: Yes.

Cynthia Voigt creates a wonderfully diverse and quirky cast of characters for this classic tale of friends and neighbors striving to get along. It’s a story that will resonate especially well with young readers and listeners learning to deal with new people and personalities in their classrooms.
