KIRKUS REVIEW

 Deftly rhymed and set on large double spreads dramatizing the size difference between its protagonists, an amusing variant on McCloskey's Blueberries for Sal. Tiny and wide-eyed, ``Eddie's off to find his teddy./Eddie's teddy's name is Freddie.'' Venturing among the forest's towering trees, he happens on a giant teddy bear; but now an enormous real bear arrives, cuddling Eddie's much smaller but otherwise identical teddy. Both Eddie and the bear turn tail and flee, and are last seen huddled in their own beds, each clutching his own teddy. The striking, expressive watercolors are just right for this satisfying, nicely symmetrical tale. A fine choice for lap or group. (Picture book. 2-7)
