Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A bit like the great movie Toy Story and a bit like the wonderful Kate DiCamillo book The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. This is a great family book. --The Washington Post

Here is the first book in the highly acclaimed Toys trilogy, which includes the companion books Toy Dance Party and Toys Come Home 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 sure what 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.

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.

A Parents' Choice Silver Honor Winner, an ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book, and an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Book Award Winner, Toys Go Out is truly a modern classic.

   Fun story to read aloud.
The little songs we loved. Here were a few words that I skipped and changed. These were very minor and would be found as my children were older. Loved the book and already ordered the 2nd.

   Sweet and Surprising
The short title, Toys Go Out, has intrigued me enough to take the book off the shelf in our library. The expanded picture on the cover and the loopy title ending in Someone Called Plastic was the Clincher. The story includes a wonderful self-discovery and the surprising adventures of the stuffed toys, with eventual surprises in the details. The chapters include In The Backpack, where it is very dark and the terrifying bigness of the washing machine, which gives you a children's perspective of the world and how it is different from our own. Both our children loved this book, as did both the grown-ups. After reading it on our recommendation, my third-grade teacher bought it for the class.

   Wonderful read aloud
My six year old and I finished this book just now, and I can 't remember the last time I looked forward to reading Aloud so much! We can 't wait for her next book!

   A Huge Hit in Our House!
My 5-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter demanded that I read it again to them. This is the first time they have ever requested a chapter book to be read for the second time.

   Delightfully funny story!
I read it to my second year students every year and love them! I also read it to my six-and-six year old children and it was a hit there too.

   Cute story
I began reading this book to my 6 year old. She liked the story, but lost the focus. I think it has to do with a great deal of dialogue and very little real action ''. And while she has a great imagination, I think it was hard for her to believe that the little girls toys were alive ''.

   I really liked this book
The buffalo was my favorite character Lumpy. I think this is a fun book for children to read.

   Sweet stories and loveable characters
We love this book and I see ourselves coming back to it soon, though we finished reading it just. Each chapter stands alone as its own story, making it great for reading at bedtime. There are 3 main characters, but the supporting cast is also awesome - it includes the washer and dryer, a towel named Tuk Tuk... We loved it so much we have the other 2 books in the series. It is like Toy Story, but more mature and with no bad guy.

   Charming
It is an enticing story. It's humorous, poignant moments and refreshing. Characters have personalities that can be identified with all adults and children. I liked that the toys engaged with each other, but their owner '' was just called the girl. The active interaction was not therefore a human part.

   Mediocre at best
What utters Rot. This does not hold a candle to anything classical, and is another sad reminder of how easy it is to publish these days and how poor the quality of the output is. My child, having read Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, EB White, Pippy Longstocking... is a bit mystified by this bilge. Don squander your money... and more importantly, your limited time in this age range is far better served by myriad other tried-and-tested classics.
