Narrator Kirby Heyborne offers gentle portrayals of five teddies who find themselves abandoned in a garbage dump. Blue teddy Buddy's courageous tenacity makes him well suited to be the leader of the group, and he takes it upon himself to guide the others out of the trash and back home to the toy store. Heyborne creates distinct characters ranging from Sugar, who has a childlike persona, to Horace, who must cope with terrified anxiety. Heyborne's deliberate pace immerses listeners; his impressive performance makes up for the absence of the beautiful illustrations featured in the print version of the book. Heyborne's somber execution underlines the seemingly insurmountable challenges faced by the teddies, whose biggest dream is to someday belong to a child.
