From the creator of Wibbly Pig and Kipper, this new edition of Baggy Brown celebrates friendship, priceless teddy bears and royal babies. Baggy Brown was born at Better Bears Limited. Only he wasn't born as Baggy Brown, but Number One. And as a special limited edition bear, he was due to be presented to the Royal Baby, daughter of King and Queen of Thingland. But this isn't quite what happened. This is the story of how Alfie found and named Baggy Brown and the beginnings of a very special friendship. 'Echoing the theme of the children's classic The Velveteen Rabbit, Baggy Brown reminds children that the best-loved toys are usually the oldest and shabbiest, and that being scruffy and worn is a sign of having been loved.' The Observer

It has the charm of entertaining language ... and the richness of Mick Inkpen's crispycartoons ... The book embraces different classes and generations, and will stand repetition and the test of time, outliving any headlines that might seem to be pertinent The Sunday Times An endearing tale with the usual Mick Inkpen appeal. The Children's Bookseller Echoing the theme of the children's classic The Velveteen Rabbit, Baggy Brown reminds children that the best-loved toys are usually the oldest and shabbiest, and that being scruffy and worn is a sign of having been loved. It's a simple, heartwarming story about an old bear and a little princess who becomes friends with the son of a factory worker and my son has asked for it every night since I brought it home (and twice fallen asleep clutching it).
