Praise

Praise for the Toys trilogy:

“This charming book makes ideal bedtime reading.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A sure hit for reading aloud and a classic in the making.” —The San Francisco Chronicle

“Jenkins deftly penetrates the natural anxieties of childhood—the phobias, the insecurities, the self-doubts—without playing them down.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Has the nostalgic feel of a children’s book from an earlier time—part Winnie the Pooh, part Hitty and part bedtime book. A perfect selection for family read-alouds.” —Bookpage

“A blend of Toy Story and the stories of Jonny Gruelle and A.A. Milne. Young readers will enjoy exploring the warm, secret world of toys.” —Kirkus Reviews

“There’s a heavy fragrance of A.A. Milne to the narrative, not just in concept but in style and in details such as Plastic’s fondness for Pooh-like “hums,” but the book has a cuddly sturdiness all its own.” —The Bulletin

“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.” —Booklist, Starred

“An utterly delightful peek into the secret lives of toys. Here is a book bound to be a favorite with any child who has ever adored an inanimate object.” —School Library Journal, Starred

“You’ll love Lumphy, and StingRay, and Plastic. You’ll laugh over their choice of birthday presents and hold your breath over Plastic’s encounter with the Possible Shark. Most of all, you’ll never forget these three. I know I won’t.” —Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time Newbery Honor-winning author
