Ellie loves Scruffle, he's her oldest and her best bear.
But Scruffle only has one eye, is held together by mouldy thread and has a rather disgusting smell.
Ellie's mum decides it's time for a brand new bear...But Ellie doesn't like her new bear - who has ever heard of a bear that smells like flowers?
Ellie's mum insists she gives the new bear a chance.
So Ellie takes him with her while she plays cowboys and indians and helps grandad in the garden, and he soon ends up just as whiffy as Scruffle!
Meanwhile Mum tries to understand what it is Ellie loves about Scruffle.
While smelly, he is also extremely cuddly. Ellie asks to keep both bears and her mum agrees, but only if they both take a spin in the washing machine!
A wonderful way to introduce the topic of coping with change, any child with a favourite toy will enjoy this story.
