Tamar’s Messyteddy is a stubborn little bear who causes a lot of trouble and has straw for brains. He pulls lots of pranks and sometimes makes a real mess of things. But is it really Messyteddy who snatched all the candy, brushed his teeth with the hairbrush and glued a noodle to Ron’s little backside? Tamar, an untidy little girl, does things that she and her readers know she shouldn’t do, and she blames it all on Messyteddy. When she goes into the shower with her underwear on or bakes mud pies in the garden with dishes from the kitchen- it’s always Messyteddy’s fault! But eventually she owns up to all her mischief and realizes that part of the reason she loves Messyteddy so much is because he doesn`t mind taking the blame for her.
