I think I would have been about 7ish when this was a gift and I fell in love with it. There was something so appealing about the little fuzzy toys posed in the snow that made me just love them. Teddy Edward himself, his friends Jasmine the rabbit, SnowyToes the panda and Bushy the bushbaby all cavorting in the snow and in front of their chalet. If memory serves me it was the only storybook I had ever seen with photographic illustrations, and they somehow made it all so much more real. According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teddy_Edward a television series was made based on these books, but I have never seen it nor any other books about Teddy Edward and his friends. But I do still have this very well worn favourite of mine and plan to share it with Small very soon.
