This is a beguiling tribute to dreams, especially those inspired by that favourite bedtime friend, Teddy. Mysterious things can happen as you drift off to sleep. One night, Teddy begins to change. Off pops his button nose, and from his paws strong claws grow. Teddy has turned into a grizzly bear - and you have too! From your bedroom, he leads you out into the forest, his home. He teaches you to fish in icy streams, climb mountain ledges, roam and prowl. Then, as the sun begins to rise, it's back to bed - with a secret that only you and Teddy share: that you know what the grizzly knows!
