Product description


"Kelly, a debut author (and grandson of Roald Dahl), writes austere, emotionally blunt rhymes [that], when combined with Tanaka s ("One Moon, Two Cats") velvety but highly formal acrylic illustrations, keep the book s more playful fantasy elements in check. On the spectrum of stories about the inner lives of playthings, this is more "Velveteen Rabbit" than "Toy Story.""--"Publishers Weekl"y
"Kelly gives lost possessions a new life in his first book . . . The message is heartfelt and it may comfort children who are missing their favorite toys"--"School Library Journal
""Can offer copious comfort to children with the suggestion that their closest childhood friends have found second lives elsewhere.""--Kirkus Review
