This was a favorite book of my son's when he was little, back in the early 1970s, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this new edition just in time for my youngest grandson's birthday. It's a delightful story of a beloved teddy bear, belonging to a little girl named Lucy, who accidentally gets put inside a pile of laundry, and is taken to the Laundromat, where he finds himself, to his dismay, going through a washing machine and dryer. Afterward, he doesn't feel right being so clean, but fortunately he falls out of the wagon on the way home, and with the help of a dog, two fighting cats, and a little boy with a lollipop, he is soon back to his comfortably smudgy, bearish self, after which Lucy finds him and takes him home. This is a fun book that young children will love, enhanced by colorful new illustrations by Juli Kangas.
