Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 2/9/2014

    " Sweet prequel to the other two books in this series, but not as laugh-out-loud funny. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Franki Sibberson | 2/7/2014

    " A great addition to this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marija | 2/6/2014

    " The third installment of "Toys Go Out" did not disappoint. Our family had a great time, once again, experiencing life's daily adventures from the perspective of playthings! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kellie | 2/4/2014

    " I liked this one. It was fun to see how Lumphy, Plastic, and StingRay came to be with the little girl. I was sad about Bobby Dot, though. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caren | 1/23/2014

    " A prequel to the 2 previous books. It is the story of where Sting Ray, Lumphy and Plastic come from. Adorable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leanne Ellis | 1/15/2014

    " I just love these books. When I heard there was a third coming out, I was thrilled. This one is a prequel, and it is as almost-painfully adorable, funny, and wise as the other two. My students (grades 3-5) love these, and I am looking forward to reading them with my first grader this year. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/9/2014

    " This children's chapter book was a good addition to the "from the perspective of the toy" genre. The narrator (a stuffed stingray) was an engaging character and I think my kids would enjoy this book. There are two others as well, so maybe I'll get them for a summer road trip! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/7/2013

    " Oh to be as wise as Stingray! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 12/5/2013

    " These little guys do kind of grow on you. Still not the greatest of writing, but a fun read. Here are the stories of how The Girl acquires each of these toys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 meg | 12/5/2013

    " the prequel/origin stories. god i love these toys. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 11/24/2013

    " I thought it was a great book because the author was very descriptive, I felt like I was in the room with the toys. My favorite part of the book was everything. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/11/2013

    " Love this series. I think these would be the best books for bedtime read-alouds. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alexa | 11/8/2013

    " I wanted to love this book so badly but it just did not do anything for me, except for Lumphy's bravery and the puke scene. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 10/17/2013

    " Honestly, It's as good as the first! Skip the second, read the first and third. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DeNae | 10/11/2013

    " This was not nearly as engaging or silly as the first two, but it was fun to get the back story on these characters that our family loves so very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 9/14/2013

    " As a lover of The Velveteen Rabbit, I really enjoyed this and will be reading the others--not sure how well it plays with beginning chapter readers though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 9/7/2013

    " Charming, delightful and hilarious. And finally we find out what happened to Sheep's ear. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Kahn | 7/4/2013

    " A fittingly adorable prequel for an adorable series. I just love the understated innocent humor and the lovingly drawn illustrations. Such fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marianna | 4/16/2013

    " Emily Jenkins does an amazing job of reaching children where they are. The toys do the talking, but you just know that little kids have some of the same thoughts and ideas that Lumphy and StingRay have. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 3/9/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 2/26/2013

    " Totally delightful. I haven't read the first two books, but I will. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Virginia Walter | 1/27/2013

    " This prequel to TOYS GO OUT and TOY DANCE PARTY is practically perfect in every way. My only regret is that I don't have a child in my life who is the right age for me to read it to. "
