One day, an old box was dumped in the park. Inside were Tilly Ted and Cruffy Ted, squashed among the other unwanted toys. 'What will we do now?' asked Tilly. 'We'll have to find someone else to love us,' said Gruffy. When Tilly and Gruffy are abandoned by their previous owner, they decide to face the world and take destiny into their own hands. But finding someone to love them isn't as easy as they expected. Award-winning artist Kilmeny Niland's delightful watercolous bring these two brave teddies to life, and her poignant story of love and longing will touch the hearts of young and old alike.
