About the Book

Chocolate Truffles and Binkley Bear are two teddy bears that live in a toy store. They wonder if they will ever find a real home with a real family. When they are finally purchased by a kind lady and man, they think their wishes have come true. They are taken home to a sunny little room filled with teddy bears just like them. All is happy and calm until Binkley overhears a terrible rumor about something called a baby that will be coming to live with them. The bears are in an uproar as things in the room start changing. When boxes are moved to the attic, they fear they might be next. Finally, fearing the worst, they hear a sound they have never heard before. Could this be the baby thing they have dreaded? Will they still be loved? Will they be able to live with this new little stranger in their room?

About the Author

Author P. J. McLean lives in Ohio with her husband of twenty-three years, two rambunctious boys, two precocious teenage girls, and two beagle-mix pups, which leads to a very lively household. Amid all this, she has been encouraged to publish a children’s book. She decided to go with a story she had written a long time ago, “The Bears and the Baby.” The charming characters in the story have given her new ideas for future books. She hopes this will be a book that will earn a special place on a child’s bookshelf. Illustrator C. S. Jenkins currently lives in Ohio with her husband of twenty-eight years. Though her two grown boys and new daughter-in-law keep her very busy, she still has found time to raise a little prince named Theodore Ruffrider Roosevelt. Teddy, as he has lovingly been nicknamed, is a Shih Tzu–Yorkie mix that is full of life. C. S. Jenkins enjoys drawing in her spare time, and because of that, she decided to join with her sister in the publication of the book The Bears and the Baby. She’s hoping the characters are well received as future books are beginning to materialize in their partnership.
