The Adventures of Poppy and Lord Ted
Poppy is an extraordinary young girl who loves spending quality time with her grandparents and Lord Ted, a truly magical teddy bear.
Through her family adventures with her grandparents, Poppy learns life skills and realises the importance of love, honesty, and respect.
In The First Summer, following a school trip to the Tower of London, Poppy and Lord Ted hear that the crown jewels have been stolen and that warder, George Featherbottom has been kidnapped. The hunt is on for Chief Inspector Pickles-Cunningham and his team to solve the crime of the century and to return the crown jewels to the queen. Unaware of the danger before her, Poppy soon finds herself entangled in the mystery and races to save the day.
In The Return of Saint Nick, we find out that most of the gang are now behind bars and the crown jewels have been returned to Queen Elizabeth. However, with a new team behind him, Saint Nick is determined to get his hands on the jewels. A trap is set to bring the notorious criminal to justice but when it goes wrong Poppy puts herself and Lord Ted in mortal danger to save the future of the British Monarchy.
The story is set prior to the death of Queen Elizabeth II but demonstrates the values our late queen lived her life by and the respect she deserved. Tim’s hope is that grandparents will relate to the joy of sharing bedtime stories with their grandchildren and in taking pride in what their grandchildren can achieve whilst learning these valuable life values.

Sneaky peek extracts from the book
Poppy rolled on to her left side to see a dazed Gullveig and Jareth on the floor shaking their heads.
“Hello,” she said, “you must be Gullveig and Jareth the tooth fairies, you live behind the blue door don’t you?”
“Oh, hi Miss Poppy, miss,” said Gullveig and Jareth together both elbowing each other at the same time.
“Yes we do Miss Poppy,” continued Gullveig, “and this has never happened before. We’ve been doing this for about 436 years 4 months 1 week and a day and this is the first time anyone has woken up.”
