Drummond: The Search for Sarah

Sally Odgers, Author, Carol Jones, Illustrator Holiday House $16.95 (110p) ISBN 978-0-8234-0851-1
Teddy bear fans and non-teddy bear fans alike will warm right up to this satisfying tale of a curmudgeonly but lovable bear who happens to be able to talk. In a case of mistaken identity, Drummond is brought to life by a girl named Sarah and her brother Nicholas. Determined to find the other Sarah, his original owner, the bear embarks on a series of adventures. Odgers spins a convincing tale--the interaction between the siblings is especially well rendered--and readers will find themselves caught up in unraveling the mystery. Broken up into chapters and peppered with Jones's delicate ink-and-wash illustrations, the lengthy (112 pages) story moves along briskly, well-suited for reading aloud or for solo reading by intermediates. Ages 7-10. (Oct.)
