Think back on all the things a teddy bear does with its owner.  It's carried around the house and yard, gets dirty, has to be washed and dried, and needs to be patched up when life gets tough.  Louis has had enough!  There are plans for a getaway, but those plans are ruined every time one of the children appreciates their much-loved teddy bear.  What will Louis decide to do?  The colorful, creative illustrations look hand-drawn, but were done on an iPad.  They're large enough for a reading aloud in front of a group, and add an element of humor to the story.
