Teddy's World

All great children’s literature, from Alice’s Adventures to Where the Wild Things Are, features wonderful characters who lead the reader on imaginative journeys of transformation. Teddy’s World presents a poignant journey into the inner life of the dearest and most powerful icon of childhood. A beautifully designed book for all ages, Teddy’s World features 200 full-color photomontages of the teddy bear’s world that are sometimes surreal, sometimes super-real, and always witty and original. The playful text — which follows Teddy’s rough-and-tumble times through the ups and downs of love and loss, joy and trauma — invites readers to explore their own emotional attachment to Teddy. This sumptuous visual tour is a fitting tribute to the teddy bear, which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2002.

I love just looking at these cute scenes with teddy bears whenever I'm blue! It is just the cutest thing I've ever seen!

I'd never guess in a million years how good this book is. I'm a teacher so I pick up a bunch of strange books I wouldn't have looked at before. This is very clever and my students are going to love it. The girls will go nuts over the cute pictures and funny text.

Iv'e wanted this book for a long time. It is a huge coffee table size book. The photos remind me of the 1980s. Great teddy bears are posed in such elaborate back rounds. Such beautiful photography. It is much better than I expected. That is rare these days!

This beautifully photographed book is full of absolutely gorgeous teddy bears. I just love looking at these antique and vintage old characters, some with fur, some without! I cannot praise it highly enough, not a reference book, but if you love old bear's you won't be disappointed!
