Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

"[A] timeless story of adventure and friendship to treasure aloud or independently," raved Booklist in a starred review. 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.
