Teddy Took the Train

Nicki Greenberg

Dot loves Teddy, and Teddy loves Dot. So when Teddy goes missing, she misses him a lot! But Teddy is a brave bear. What wonderful adventures will he have when he rides away on the train? Will there be picnics? Will there be parties? Will he have time for a nap? And most importantly, will he find his way home to Dot - or will she never see him again?

A thoroughly delightful picture book about courage, resilience and imagination.


Melbourne graphic novelist and picture-book author Nicki Greenberg has captured a common childhood scenario and turned it into a triumphant imaginative adventure. When exuberant Dot and her mum return from the market, Teddy is accidentally left behind on the train. But Greenberg cleverly shows readers that life is all in how you look at it: Dot decides that Teddy took the train to a strictly teddies-only affair – the teddy bears’ picnic!

While Dot is at home passing the time with her other toys, Teddy is out in the world having marvellous adventures. Set on the Melbourne train network, with rhythmic rhyming text and gorgeous retro illustrations, this is a delightful story that will allay children’s fears and set their imaginations free.

A brilliant book for kids aged 3-5.
