Oliver Donnington Rimington-Sneep wakes one night to discover that his beloved Ted is no longer in his bed. He gets up and begins hunting, then ends up going on a journey that takes him far and wide, in search of Ted. This is a great book to read with children, as it uses fun rhyming text, and the accompanying illustrations are full of detail and interest. If your children like the character, then this is in fact that the third in the series, so there are other Oliver adventures to read.
