Doch, oh weh', wie sieht er aus, das Fell des Teddys ist zerzaust und schmutzig, die Ohren oder Gelenke sind heraus gerissen und die Holzwolle ist zerbröselt. Von der Puppe sind die Augen heraus gefallen und die Glieder hängen schlaff herunter. Auch ihre Frisur lässt zu wünschen übrig.
So kommen dann die jammervollen Gestalten in die Puppen- und Bärenklinik - sie sehen manchmal so schlimm aus, dass selbst der Puppendoktor zweifelt, ob er die Puppe oder den Bären reparieren oder restaurieren kann.
Die Puppen- und Bärenklinik Straub wird von der Autorin und ihrem Mann seit über zehn Jahren geführt. Viele Jahre vermittelte Rosemarie Straub ihr Wissen in Puppenkursen, wo individuelle Puppen aus unterschiedlichen Materialien geboren wurden.
Aus den Erfahrungen und Ereignissen dieser Zeit entstanden die Geschichten und Gedichte der Autorin, kleine Episoden über Puppen, Teddybären und andere Kuscheltiere.
Auch einen Einblick in die Entstehungsgeschichte der Puppen und Bären will sie in diesem kleinen Büchlein geben.
