Freddy the Not-Teddy
Kristen Schroeder & Hilary Jean Tapper
Freddy is Jonah’s favourite stuffed toy, but no one knows quite what Freddy is – a funky duck, a peculiar platypus, a punk rock penguin? He’s certainly not a Teddy, which might be a problem at the Teddy Bears’ Picnic! Find out what happens when Jonah stands up for Freddy in a heart-warming story that will resonate with any child who has ever felt a little different. A celebration of inclusivity and kindness, Freddy the Not-Teddy will inspire young readers to express themselves just as they are! AUTHORS: Kristen Schroeder writes for children from her home in Minnesota, where she lives with her family. Freddy the Not-Teddy was inspired by her son’s favourite stuffed toy, Freddy.
Hilary Jean Tapper is a picture book illustrator, children’s arts therapist and dollmaking teacher.
