Bunny Thread isn’t a girl you can’t call average. She is eleven years old, lives at the back of a button shop, and makes her own clothes. You would have to look far and wide to find anybody more skilled with a sewing machine or more nimble-fingered with a thread and needle. Bunny is one of a kind – too out there, if you ask her classmates. That’s why she cannot find a friend, no matter how hard she tries. One day she decides to use her unique skills to make herself a friend. It takes three tries, but finally Bunny manages to create a friendly-looking teddy bear, which she names Buttercup. She goes to bed with her new friend and falls asleep happily. The next morning Buttercup is gone from her bed. But there is a teddy bear on the window sill of her room. She goes to get her Buttercup back, when suddenly, the bear turns around and starts to talk to her! He tells Bunny that his name is Dexter and whisks her off to his home, a place called Twell Town, where a fantastic adventure begins to unfold. It is only through Bunny’s skills and Dexter’s wit that the two of them succeed in foiling the evil plans of the town’s most greedy factory owner, Wick Racket, who is planning a great robbery in Bunny’s world.
