Doctor Ted

This week's contender for "book read most times during a single day" has to be Doctor Ted, the cute tale of a little bear who bangs his knee one morning getting out of bed, and decides that the world needs a tiny toddler-sized medic to tackle everyone's ills. 

Doctor Ted continues his good work at school, and runs into a spot of bother in doing so. 

What I loved about this more than anything else is the slightly tongue-in-cheek way this mini doctor fellow actually behaves a lot like the real thing (ie doesn't listen to what you're telling him, prescribes odd cures for something that's entirely unrelated to what you came in for). Kids will love the cute drawings and characters, adults will undoubtedly love the slightly anarchic humour. 

Charlotte's best bit: Doctor Ted's remarkable cure for his head teacher's bad breath!

Daddy's favourite bit: The lovely wry digs at the adult characters in the story.
