Just Being Ted


Lisa Sheehan


Ted the dragon lives all alone in a big house, deep in the woods. He LOVES making things, spending his days baking cakes, painting pictures and creating costumes. There's just one problem: he doesn't have anyone to share his amazing creations with.

Ted tries so hard to make friends with the other animals, but there's something about his fiery breath and fearsome-looking claws that keeps putting them off.

One day Ted notices a sign for a summer picnic party in the forest. The only trouble is that it's for BEARS ONLY. Perhaps if he dresses up as a bear for the day they'll let him in and he'll make lots of new friends. What could possibly go wrong?

Just Being Ted is a sweet, heart-warming story about the importance of being yourself and being accepted for who you are.

 

Lisa Sheehan is an illustrator, graphic designer and all-round image maker who lives in Bedfordshire with her husband, two daughters and two huge ginger Main Coon cats. Graduating from Kingston University with a degree in graphic design, Lisa went on to become an art director for the Financial Times, before embarking on the MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Since graduating she has illustrated two picture books: The Find It Book by Margaret Wise Brown, which was shortlisted for the AOI awards, and Lionel and the Lion's Share with Lou Peacock. Just Being Ted is the first title Lisa has both written and illustrated. The idea came from a teddy bears' picnic at her daughter's school, at which only teddy bears were allowed. Lisa thought this was very unfair on any other stuffed animals that wanted to attend, too, and the idea for Ted was born.
