Nobody takes a teddy seriously — and that might just save Teddy’s life.
Not that he’ll notice; Teddy is too focused on reaching the lady of his dreams, avoiding a vomiting baby and finding a way to get from Aberystwyth to Clehonger, despite being unable to read a map.

Will a world of cynical animals and indifferent humans drain him of his hopes and wide-eyed trust, or will he find a way to escape danger while holding on to his naive belief that he can do something amazing?
And what does it all have to do with The Darkgate?
