The Not so little Princess Rosie loves her teddy Gilbert. But one day when she sees her friend Ollie coming through the vegie garden towards her, she suddenly feels silly holding her toy. She tries to hide him in a nearby bush, but Ollie sees her do it. He pulls him out again, only for Princess Rosie to deny owning him.
She finally escapes her embarrassment as they run off and play in the sunshine. She forgets all about him until she’s in bed that night – but Gilbert has been having adventures all on his own.
Will she ever see him again?
