'Life's no picnic for this teddy bear'
Fully equipped, superbly trained and afraid of nothing (well, almost), Ted has dedicated his life to saving and serving others.
But will his rescue mission to the Wild Forest knock the stuffing out of him once and for all? And will he ever return to his loving owner, Oliver?
Warm-hearted, thrilling and delightfully silly, this magical-adventure series will captivate young readers.
About The Author
Michael Wagner is a children's author whose best-known books follow the funny and action-packed sporting adventures of Maxx Rumble, and the hilarious father-son rivalries of The Undys. He is also author of the novel Dog Wars, and the Aussie Nibble: Newtown Tigers.
Prior to becoming a children's author, Michael played in a band that almost became famous, spent ten years working as a radio broadcaster with the ABC, wrote and produced award-winning animation for television, and wrote and performed comedy. Michael lives with his wife, Jane Godwin (who is a proper children's author), and his two children, Will and Lizzie (who think their Dad is really cool).
Michael's latest book, Destiny's Right Hand, was published by Puffin Books in 2010.
