Outside, World War II rages as German planes drop bombs over London. Inside one family's home, a boy lies gravely ill in bed. Before leaving to fight in the war, his father told him about Davin, a teddy bear that holds the power to make sick boys well. But things look bad--no one knows where Davin is.
In an attempt to save their friend, the miniature figures of a little Bugle Boy, a blustery Sergeant Major, a princess, Robin Hood, Chingachgook, and Perseus, the Greek hero, come to life and join forces to find the mysterious Davin. Along the way, they encounter a ferocious cat, a man-eating spider, the Dark Knight, and Blackbeard and his band of terrifying pirates.
As read by Grandma Goddess to her grandchildren, Davin is a story within a story, a fantasy in which literary and historical characters clash in a war between good and evil to save a child's life.

"Listeners will be enthralled by the action and exaggerated characters. An old-fashioned rouser in the first order."
--Kirkus Reviews, Pointer
"What is that?" said the Sergeant Major.
"I don't know," Perseus said.
"I do!" said the Bugle Boy. "Look out!"
They looked up and there across the landing was the Nanny's fat tabby cat. The rrrrrrrrrrrr...rrrrrrrrrrrr sound grew louder and louder. It was not a contented purrrrrrrrrrrring sound...it was a hungry one! It was in fact the sound of the cat-word for "lunch"!
The fat cat licked her chops, ran her tongue across her fangs and dug her claws into the carpet, as if testing them, sharpening them for the kill. To the Nanny's cat, the three figures didn't look like toys at all, they looked just like three plump juicy little mice ready to be eaten!
