Red Ted is a teddy bear who finds himself on a high shelf in the Lost and Found of a large train station. He’s desolate that his owner, Stevie, left him behind when getting off the train. The toy Crocodile next to him tries to comfort him with resignation, but Red Ted instead resolves to find Stevie. Together they escape the Lost and Found and on the way meet a street-wise stray cat. The threesome brave the dangerous streets, and with luck and perseverance, get to Stevie’s house. Stevie is a young girl with a big heart, and she knows just what to do to reward Red Ted and his new friends.

Contrasting against blurry but detailed sepia backgrounds that evoke a time-worn city, the characters—rendered in loose line and muted color—move forward with fear of abandonment but smart cunning.

Picture Book, ages 4-6.  Recommended- Amelia L. Carling (Pelham)
