Chance to win annual membership for two adults and two children to Pecorama

Fill out my online form.

Visitor to Pecorama are being invited to join Margaret Edmonds, author of the Teddy Mac adventures, on Sunday, July 15, who will be there to meet children, read stories, sign books and talk all things Teddy Mac!

Teddy Mac And The Railway Bears, written by Margaret Edmonds and illustrated by Rikey Austin, are the stories about a lost bear journeying above and below ground who discovers who he is and where he is meant to be.

Found in a muddy puddle in the Pecorama car park, Teddy Mac is taken home by Grandad, a steam train driver, where he makes friends with the other Railway Bears on the bookshelf. Each day Grandad takes Teddy Mac to work in the hope that someone might claim him.

During his adventures, Teddy Mac discovers that there are a mass of mole runs beneath Pecorama, all leading to the mole marble mine, where all the lost marbles in the world are to be found.

Wherever they are dropped, marbles are drawn to the mole mine by the Moon Marble.

The six linked stories make up a much bigger tale of how Teddy Mac gains his confidence.

The complete series of seven Teddy Mac books are available from the Peco Model Shop at Pecorama.
