Wendy Abram February 9, 2000 Book Report (about a
boy character) Title: Super-Duper Teddy Author: Johanna
Hurwitz Setting: The story takes place in Teddy?s
neighborhood, Teddy?s apartment, and in Anita?s house.
Main Character: The main character is Teddy. Supporting
Characters: There are many supporting characters. They are
Teddy?s mom; his sister, Nora; his neighbor, Anita; his
friend, Bryan; his turtle, Mr. Hush; and Anita?s cat,
Cassandra. Favorite Character: My favorite character is
Teddy because he always has his Super-Duper Cape. He is
usually shy except when he is wearing his cape. Summary:
Teddy is a shy five year old boy who lives in an apartment.
His sister, Nora is never shy. Teddy gets invited to Bryan?s
birthday party but Teddy doesn?t want to go. His mom
forces him to go and he ends up being the only other guest.
After that, his mom goes to a wedding. His grandma and
grandpa visit for two nights. Teddy and Nora didn?t like the
breakfast their grandparents made and they were bored.
When his mom came back, Teddy had to baby sit his
neighbor Anita?s cat, Cassandra. He would get paid money.
Cassandra makes a big mess but Teddy washes the mess up
with his cape. One day Teddy was very anxious to get a pet.
When he and his mom were driving, Teddy saw a pet shop
and they went in. Teddy spotted the perfect pet and they
bought him. The pet was a turtle and Teddy named him Mr.
Hush because he was so quiet. The next day, his substitute
teacher said they were going to take a long walk because it
was a beautiful day. When they were halfway done, Jerry
the fruit store keeper was blocking their way. Teddy saw
fruit that looked like tiny oranges. Jerry said they were called
kumquats. Teddy?s apartment was right across the street
from Jerry?s store, so they went into his apartment. When
they went into the elevator, it got stuck. There was a red
button that Teddy always wanted to push, and he finally got
to push it. When they all got to Teddy?s room, they ate
cookies and milk. The next day at school, Teddy was so
happy that he put his cape in the dress-up box. Even though
Teddy didn?t have his cape he still felt SUPER! Favorite
Part: My favorite part was when Teddy pushed the red
button in the elevator. I always wanted to push the red
button on elevators so I felt happy that he got to push it.
Ending: I felt happy about the ending of the story because
Teddy was not shy to anyone any longer. Recommendation:
I would recommend this book because it is full of surprises. I
think a person who loves animals would enjoy this book too.
