Cheer Up Your Teddy Emily Brown
By Cressida Cowell
Illustrated by Neal Layton
By the bestselling author of the How to Train Your Dragon series comes a reissue of the classic tale of Emily Brown and her old grey rabbit called Stanley.
Emily Brown and her side-kick rabbit, Stanley, are back and this time they're on a mission to cheer up one very unhappy teddy bear. But, no matter what they try, the teddy bear is STILL miserable. Emily Brown has had ENOUGH!
With an important message that children will understand, this is storytelling at its best, from an exciting creative team in children's books.
'Will both delight fans, and give them something to reflect on. Layton's illustrations are a joy, matching the text perfectly.' - Bookseller
