From the creator of Wibbly Pig and Kipper, this classic story celebrates friendship and teddy bears.

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

MEDIA REVIEWS
Warmth and wit in huge dollops * Books For Keeps *
Loveable modern fairy tale with soft , endearing illustrations * Bournemouth Daily Echo *
A warm-hearted fairy tale * The Scotsman *
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). * The Observer *
Utterly charming! As is Mick Inkpens BAGGY BROWN (Hodder, 10.99), the story of a teddy that goes astray and is found by a boy with a destiny! * Daily Express *
charming new picture book * Suffolk Free Press *
A warm-hearted fairy tale with, of course, a happy-ever-after ending. * The Scotsman *
Well illustrated with touching plot....still retains that Inkpen magic, especially the front cover, which makes you want to hold onto and hug the book forever. * My Child *
Loveable modern fairy tale with soft, endearing illustrations * Bournemouth Daily Echo *
There is warmth and wit in huge dollops in this story to enhance and feed the imaginations of many an Inkpen /Kipper fan. * Books for Keeps *
affectionate story * Cork Evening Echo *
Smiles all round at the end and indeed well before in this consistently good-humoured tale, colourfully illustrated by a master of his craft. * Nicholas Tucker, Carousel *
It has the charm of entertaining language and the richness of Mick Inkpen's crisp cartoons... and will stand repetition and the test of time, outliving any headlines that might seem to be pertinent. * The Sunday Times *
A wonderful tale, beautifully told. * School Librarian *
