âA bit like the great movieÂ Toy StoryÂ and a bit like the wonderful Kate DiCamillo bookÂ The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. This is a great family book.â âThe Washington Post
Here is the first book in the highly acclaimed Toys trilogy, which includes the companion booksÂ Toy Dance PartyÂ andÂ Toys Come HomeÂ and chronicles the unforgettable adventures of three brave and loving toys.
In these six linked stories from Emily Jenkins, and illustrated by Caldecott Medal winner Paul O. Zelinsky, readers will meet three extraordinary friends. Lumphy is a stuffed buffalo. StingRay is a stuffed stingray. And Plastic... well, Plastic isn't quite sureÂ whatÂ she is. They all belong to the Little Girl who lives on the high bed with the fluffy pillows. A very nice person to belong to.Â
Together is best for these three best friends. Together they look things up in the dictionary, explore the basement, and argue about the meaning of life. And together they face dogs, school, television commercials, the vastness of the sea, and the terrifying bigness of the washing machine.
AÂ Parents' ChoiceÂ Silver Honor Winner, an ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book, and an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award Winner,Â Toys Go OutÂ is truly a modern classic.
