With bravery, teamwork and lots of common sense, a forgotten bear finds his way home in this warm, wise and very funny graphic picture book by former Children's Laureate Michael Rosen and illustrated by Joel Stewart. One day, a little bear named Red Ted is accidentally left on the seat of a train by his owner Stevle and ends up in the place for lost things. He doesn't despair, however - he puts his mind to work! With the help of his new friends, a pessimistic crocodile and a cat with a fondness for cheese, Ted finds his way home to the little girl who loves and misses him. This is a sweet graphic storybook about pluck, persistence, and the pure comfort of home at the end of a long journey full of adventure.
