Read full description of the books Threadbear:The story centres around a teddy bear he has one eye that is a button meaning he see's everything in fours rather than singles, and so much stuffing within him that is arms and chest is solid and he has never been able to get his deeply buried squeaker to work. Different people that have tried to get Threadbears squeaker to work, and all failing miserably. This of course makes Threadbear really sad that he can't squeak and do as he should for his owner and friend Ben.
After taking advice from the other toys, he decides to sit on the roof and wait for Santa to come, as he is after all the specialist knowledge in toys. After waiting and finally being picked up by Santa, he is taken to a special land that, after eating the sweet and delicious squeaker fruit, should rectify his problem. After eating the fruit however, Threadbear becomes very tired and begins to fall from the tree, when he awakens he is sitting on the floor after falling from the roof of his house. Did he dream the entire scenario, and what will finally help him squeak again........
This is a lovely story that neither confirms nor denies the intervention of Santa.
The illustration is really nice and simple. Children would be able to understand the story through the pictures. The text is reasonably simple to read, I would recommend yr 2 upwards to read by them self.
This is a good bedtime book.
