Anzac Ted is the powerful, poignant story of a little boys teddy bear that was passed down to him from his grandfather. Battered, torn, missing an eye and an ear, he might look scary but hes got a great story to tell. For Anzac Ted went to war, keeping soldiers company and giving them comfort. And while he never won a medal, and now doesnt even attract a single vote at classroom Toy Shows, if only everyone looked a little deeper:
Theyd see a hero, plain as day Who sits upon my bed. A hero, who saved me and you. His name is Anzac Ted.
While several childrens picture books cover the world wars, none has ever made the conflict so accessible to children by telling the story of a bear who went to war. Belindas exquisite watercolour illustrations combine with her rhyming text to create a book that, while perfect for parents and teachers to share with children, is also guaranteed to touch the heart of every adult.
