Quirk. Apr. 2020. 216p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781683691662.
Gr 4-6–Spark is a teddy bear. She is soft and cuddly, but she’s also a tough warrior in charge of protecting children everywhere—especially her child, Loretta. Able to see monsters, children are particularly vulnerable. When Loretta’s brother, Matthew, and other children start going missing, it’s up to Spark to rally the troops. Calling upon the ancient secret League of Ursus to help her, Spark and the band of teddy bears seek out clues to find the monster’s location. Can they save the children of the world? Will the teddy bears find the monster before Loretta also gets taken? The characters are delightfully engaging, and the plot moves at a good pace and is well written. Chapters are a reasonable length, and several feature cliff-hangers.
VERDICT Fans of fantasy, adventure, and mystery will enjoy reading this book. Recommended for libraries where such fiction is popular.
