From the creator of Wibbly Pig and Kipper, this classic story celebrates friendship and teddy bears.
Baggy Brown was born at Better Bears Limited. Only he wasn't born as Baggy Brown, but Number One. And as a special limited edition bear, he was due to be presented to the Royal Baby, daughter of King and Queen of Thingland. But this isn't quite what happened. This is the story of how Alfie found and named Baggy Brown and the beginnings of a very special friendship.
'Echoing the theme of the children's classic The Velveteen Rabbit, Baggy Brown reminds children that the best-loved toys are usually the oldest and shabbiest, and that being scruffy and worn is a sign of having been loved.' The Observer
