Teddy Atwater

Malte Persson & Bill Bragg

A small, threadbare teddy bear sits stowed away in a dark attic. When he considers how alone and forgotten he is, tears begin to fall. He cries and cries. The tears seep between the floorboards, down through the house, and out onto the street in an increasingly formidable stream. The thin trickle grows to a whole flood of tears that rushes through town faster and faster, until finally it reaches the sea!

Far away, on an island across the sea, a grounded pirate ship sits on the sand. It is filled with tattered teddy bear-pirates and other discarded stuffed animals. When they see the tide rising and taste teddy tears in the water, they free themselves from the beach and chart a course toward their weeping friend.

The pirates free Teddy Atwater. He gives the captain a hug and wipes his tears. Then he joins the stuffed rebels on their journey across the open ocean. “For now I have brand-new friends and will become a wild musketeer, traveling to distant lands as a teddybuccaneer!”

A tear-jerking picture book adventure in rhyme by Malte Persson and Bill Bragg.
