Win this celebration of childhood love and adventure

Inspired by a true story of a boy and his bear, Loved to Bits is the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

Is there any love greater than that between a child and their favourite toy?

In Loved to Bits by Teresa Heapy and Katie Cleminson (David Fickling Books), a small boy and his beloved bear embark on a lifetime of adventures together. They play, dream, hide and explore… and inevitably pick up more than a few war wounds along the way.

Worn out and battered, poor Stripy Ted isn’t quite the handsome bear he began life as. But the boy wouldn’t change him for the world…

Here's your chance to win this funny, tender and true-to-life picture book, dedicated to Teresa's son, Ben – who used to swing his own Ted round and round his head!

Win the gorgeous picture book, Loved to Bits
