The Bear Called Sunday

Alex has a teddy bear called Sunday. Checked ears, soft paws, he keeps staring gently with his button eyes – even if he sits on a toy train, or when he listens to a fairy tale, or even when his head is get compressed into tomato sauce.  But what does the bear think about while he is hanging on the clothes line in the bathroom? Does it hurt if he is manhandled, is he glad to be hugged? Is there anything behind those brightly shining button eyes? Alex is very keen to find all these answers out… but one morning strange things happen: the little boy wakes up in a toy store instead of his own room. There are similar boys and girls around him on the shelves. The salesman is an old teddy bear, and all the costumers are bears as well. Since the store is in the “Bear Republic” the bear parents buy the children as toys for their cubs. Soon Alex is selected by a papa bear, who takes him home to his son – a bear cub who is called Sunday…
