KNOW I put my football on my desk before school. When I got home, it
was GONE! Where did it go?
did my teddy bear get under my dresser? It was on my bed when I went
roller skates are gone! I know I put them on the shelf in the garage
after I played yesterday, but they aren't there now!
could have happened to my toys? They couldn't just WALK away....or could
you have ever suspected that your toys have lives of their own when
you aren't looking? You just might be right! Toys
Go Out just may prove it!
Toys Go Out, you will meet a stuffed
buffalo named Lumphy, his plush friend named StingRay, and Plastic who
isn't sure what she is. When the Little Girl isn't looking, the toys
are running around the room, getting into mischief and worrying a lot.
(All smart toys worry about whether you will get tired of them and throw
them away, you know.) StingRay worries that maybe she can't float like
a real stingray. Lumphy worries about the evil washing machine. And
poor Plastic better worry when she comes fact to face with a possible
shark! Fortunately, Tuk Tuk is around to help some of the time...when
he's not folded up in the towel closet.
next time you find one of your books open on your bed when you are sure
YOU didn't put it there, you'll probably see little footprints that
match your stuffed porcupine. The next time your washing machine sounds
a little like it's singing through is cycle, you'll listen a little
closer to try to hear his words. Did that clothes hanger move just now?
Is it my baseball's birthday? Toys
Go Out will definitely fill your heads with questions!
matter how old you are, you will LOVE these adorable toys, their warped
view of how the world works, and the problems they manage to get themselves
into. When it's all over, you'll be cheering for Emily Jenkins to write
the sequel and Paul O. Zelinsky to illustrate it!
is the story of toys that come to life, their friendship, their determination
to understand the world, and an unusual wisdom that ties them together.
It is better than a sequel to Toy
Story! Emily Jenkins creates distinct voices for each of the toys
as well as Tuk Tuk the towel, Sheep, and Frank the washing machine.
It's a bed time story you will never get too old to hear!
