A little girl (Minty, about four) goes shopping with her mother. A little bear talks to her from the shelf. She asks her mother if she can buy it, and they go home with it. Minty loves the bear, who talks back.

But it turns out the mother bought the little bear to give to Minty’s baby brother for his birthday. Minty doesn’t want to part with it, so suggests any number of her old, dirty and broken toys. Mum says no.

The next day, on the baby’s birthday, baby is given the bear and tries to put it

I have a real soft spot for Chichester Clark's illustrations as my children begged me to read the Blue Kangaroo books endlessly when they were younger. While I appreciated the sentiments of the little girl who felt very protective of the little panda she had purchased to gift to her little brother, this book just didn't have the strength of The Blue Kangaroo books for me. It may grow on me though.
