HORACE: A Teddy Bear Story.
Don’t we make a handsome couple?

I probably shouldn’t be telling you this, but I have lots of teddy bears in my house. I don’t know what it is about bears, I just like them. I was given a bear for my fortieth birthday. He sits on my bedside table. I clobber him every morning when I’m trying to switch off the alarm clock. He’s not the one you see me holding here. I found this old boy in a charity shop, which is exactly what happens to Joel, the hero of the book. He finds a bear like mine (his name’s Fred, by the way) and takes it home, intending to draw it for his art project. But that bear gets him into all kinds of trouble. I can’t tell you what or it would spoil it for you. All I’ll say is someone breaks a leg, ice cream features heavily and the bear almost gets arrested. Intrigued?
