The only reason I didn t score this higher is that we really love Traction Man This is awesome, but not as awesome as that particular beloved superhero toy.Library copy Author illustrator I dearly love And as evidence against the idea of consistently reading books at a particular time of year read in February and July Stupid human proclivity for seeing patterns, even when there aren t any Library copy A very silly not too scary story about losing a beloved toyThat summer night, the toys were left outside For the very first time, the Wonderdoll, the helpful wind up robot, the thoughtful green dinosaur, and the rest of their plucky gang lie in the grass, gazing up at the stars But one star seems brighter than the rest As it grows bigger and bigger, the toys realize it may not be a star at all Soon they re venturing into the unknown, traveling by spaceship, where they meet a lonely alien in need of help, and some friends From ever inventive, award winning author illustrator Mini Grey comes a hilarious and heartfelt new adventure a motley group of toys left outside in the garden become true friends and brave heroes in space From the Hardcover edition A story within a story The toys are left out overnight and when darkness falls they start to worry Wonder doll makes up a story to tell the toys all about a group of toys left out overnight just like them In the story they are captured by an alien toy looking for his own cuddles and meet thousands of other lost toys that he s collected in his search The toys persuade the alien that the toys must be returned to their owners Fortunately they are well labelled and so can be returned to their A story within a story The toys are left out overnight and when darkness falls they start to worry Wonder doll makes up a story to tell the toys all about a group of toys left out overnight just like them In the story they are captured by an alien toy looking for his own cuddles and meet thousands of other lost toys that he s collected in his search The toys persuade the alien that the toys must be returned to their owners Fortunately they are well labelled and so can be returned to their homes Once the story is finished and the toys are back home in daylight Wonder Doll has some advice for the alien toy as to where to find his cuddles I plan to use this book to explain to our library visitors that we can find things in the library because they are well labelled, and show them title, author and barcodes My favourite thing about this book is the way it s almost two stories running alongside each other the toys in the garden listening to a story, and the story being told by WonderDoll The way the toys keep interjecting as WonderDolls tells them the story is a great reflection of what it s often like to read stories with children, they want to know the answer to things straight away even though they d find out if they just kept listening The framing of some of the illustrations to show the pass My favourite thing about this book is the way it s almost two stories running alongside each other the toys in the garden listening to a story, and the story being told by WonderDoll The way the toys keep interjecting as WonderDolls tells them the story is a great reflection of what it s often like to read stories with children, they want to know the answer to things straight away even though they d find out if they just kept listening The framing of some of the illustrations to show the passage of time from day to night and the toys being pictured both listening to the story and being in the story It shows the contrast really well and reinforces the ideas in the text and that there are two simultaneous stories being told here This humorous little tale about some toys left out overnight in the lawn is cute and heartwarming but ultimately a little forgettable. I really was expecting to love this book After all, I loved Traction Man Is Here and while this feels similar in style though with a healthy dose of Toy Story ness, it is much, MUCH busier than Mini grey s other picturebooks I had to stop half way through because it couldn t hold my attention between 7 different toys making comments in speech bubbles, and the vast amount of spot illustrations and and text boxes over full page spreads.Just too busy I really was expecting to love this book After all, I loved Traction Man Is Here and while this feels similar in style though with a healthy dose of Toy Story ness, it is much, MUCH busier than Mini grey s other picturebooks I had to stop half way through because it couldn t hold my attention between 7 different toys making comments in speech bubbles, and the vast amount of spot illustrations and and text boxes over full page spreads.Just too busy We ve read several books by Mini Grey in fact, we really liked the Traction Man series So when I saw this book at our local library, I just had to borrow it It s a fun, spacey story that features toys that we left outside overnight The narrative is fun to read aloud and the colorful illustrations, with the author s inimitable style, complement the story nicely We loved the ending and our girls knowing the answer to Where s cuddles before the characters did Overall, it s an entertaining We ve read several books by Mini Grey in fact, we really liked the Traction Man series So when I saw this book at our local library, I just had to borrow it It s a fun, spacey story that features toys that we left outside overnight The narrative is fun to read aloud and the colorful illustrations, with the author s inimitable style, complement the story nicely We loved the ending and our girls knowing the answer to Where s cuddles before the characters did Overall, it s an entertaining book and we enjoyed reading it together We will certainly look forbooks by this author at our local library This book is very adorable with its concept of lost toys It reminds me of Toy Story in a way since each toy clearly has a distinct voice and personality, portrayed with different fonts Parents will find this story perfect for creating voices during story time What I love best is that it s a story of a story The lead toy, Wonder Doll, tells the toys a story of an alien to distract them from their fear of the dark The fun part for kids is guessing if her tale was real or make believe I d r This book is very adorable with its concept of lost toys It reminds me of Toy Story in a way since each toy clearly has a distinct voice and personality, portrayed with different fonts Parents will find this story perfect for creating voices during story time What I love best is that it s a story of a story The lead toy, Wonder Doll, tells the toys a story of an alien to distract them from their fear of the dark The fun part for kids is guessing if her tale was real or make believe I d recommend this for family reading time for toddlers and older children It s a long, lonely night for seven toys left outside after the boy with whom they live goes to bed To keep the toys from becoming too frightened, the WonderDoll spins a tale of a lien in search of its own lost toy Searching everywhere, it has amassed quite a collection of toys, not not its Cuddles The ending will make readers smile, of course, since that is always the way it is After all, once you find something, why would you continue to look for it I enjoyed how the illustrations showed It s a long, lonely night for seven toys left outside after the boy with whom they live goes to bed To keep the toys from becoming too frightened, the WonderDoll spins a tale of a lien in search of its own lost toy Searching everywhere, it has amassed quite a collection of toys, not not its Cuddles The ending will make readers smile, of course, since that is always the way it is After all, once you find something, why would you continue to look for it I enjoyed how the illustrations showed exactly where Cuddles was, bit by bit, over the course of the pages Some cute moments love the odd, charming assortment of toys and the funny, oh so true ending but overall it felt a bit too scattered for me I much prefer her Traction Man series.
