Errol and his teddy, Thomas, are best friends who do everything together. Whether it's riding a bike, playing in the tree house, having a tea party or all of the above, every day holds something fun to do together.

One sunny day, Errol finds that Thomas the Teddy is sad, and Errol can't figure out why. Then Thomas the Teddy finally tells Errol what Teddy has been afraid to say: 'In my heart, I've always known that I'm a girl teddy, not a boy teddy. I wish my name was Tilly.' And Errol says, 'I don't care if you're a girl teddy or a boy teddy! What matters is that you are my friend.'

A sweet and gentle story about being true to yourself and being a good friend, Introducing Teddy can also help children understand gender identity.

About the Author

Jessica Walton lives with her wife, son and cats in Melbourne, Australia. She was inspired to write Introducing Teddy after her father transitioned into the woman she had always been on the inside, and Jess wanted to find a way to tell that story to her young son. A former secondary teacher, Jess is passionate about literature, board games, the ukulele, and funky prosthetic legs (her current one features green dragon scales). This is her first book.

About the Illustrator

Dougal MacPherson once drew a truck on a rainy Sunday afternoon to entertain his young son. Since then, he has illustrated for tech websites and conferences, and now a children's book. Dougal grew up in New Zealand and now lives in Melbourne with his wife, son, daughter and a cat called Monster. He documents the antics of his family through fifteen-minute drawings in a popular Instagram account.

    We bought this book for each of our aged care homes for residents to share with their grand and great grandchildren. It is a great story to introduce gender differences, well written and fabulous illustrations.

      Comments about Introducing Teddy:

      I absolutely love kids books as they offer a myriad of ways for children to explore their world and use their imagination. Sometimes these books allow children to explore infinitely complex issues in a way that is age appropriate; for transgender equality, Introducing Teddy is one such book.

      The story handles such a complex issue with sensitivity and empathy. Overall it is a story about being yourself and learning to accept others as they are.
