Synopsis

Synopsis

Here is the third book in the highly acclaimed Toys Trilogy, which includes the companion books Toys Go Out and Toy Dance Party.

Fans of the series, as well as newcomers, will happily discover how Lumphy, StingRay, and Plastic came to live with the Girl. In six linked adventures, readers will also learn how the one-eared Sheep became one-eared; watch a cranky toy meet an unfortunate end; and best of all, learn why it's okay for someone you truly love to puke on you. Here is perhaps the most charming of three inimitably charming books destined to become classics.

"A timeless story of adventure and friendship to treasure aloud or independently." —Booklist, Starred

Praise

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2011:
"Life's brutal realities are spotlighted with a gleaming authenticity...Character-driven episodes unfold in six fully realized chapters; Zelinsky's softly shaded pencil drawings showcase pivotal moments, revealing each individual idiosyncrasy...during this eventful year...This enjoyable trio deserves its rightful place away from the confines of any toy chest."

Starred Review, Booklist, September 15, 2011:
"The empathetic characters, gentle drama, and occasional, full-page, black-and-white drawings create a timeless story of adventure and friendship to treasure aloud or independently. Wholly satisfying, this may well leave readers expecting to see the Velveteen Rabbit peeking in the bedroom window and smiling approvingly."
