    Andrea Beaty has a winning way about her - not only does she pen attention getting, smile provoking books for young readers but these books also teach valuable lessons. Her creation, Ted, a very helpful litttle bear, was last seen as Doctor Ted. Now, he comes to the rescue as Firefighter Ted.

    It all begins when he awakens one morning to smell smoke. He searches everywhere for a firefighter but there isn't one to be found. Well, what's a very helpful bear to do? He has no choice but to become a firefighter himself!

    Fortunately, he did have a fire truck but not a fire extinguisher, so he made one and then dashed off in the direction of the smokey smell. Of all things it turned out to be coming from his breakfast toast. Ted immediately took control of the situation, shouting "Stand back" sprayed the smoking toast, and helped his mother to safety Needless to say his mother was very happy to send him off to school.

    However, Principal Bigram wasn't too glad to see Ted as he was late, which caused the portly principal to overheat. You can imagine what a diligent firefighter might do in that case or at the school science fair.

    Pascal Lemaitre who illustrated Doctor Ted brings us the ginger snap faced Ted in bold primary colors. His illustrations are cut-out clean and energetic as he captures the characters moods with a lift of an eyebrow or wide eyed surprise.
    Of course, as young readers enjoy Ted's latest adventure they'll also be reminded of the importance of fire prevention and how fortunate we are to have firefighters who are dedicated to keeping us safe.
