    " Texas Bluebonnet for the '08-'09 school year. This book reminded me a lot of the movie 'Toy Story' because this book is written from the perspective of three different toys: a stingray, a buffalo, and a rubber ball. Each chapter covers a different adventure whether it is going to the beach, a trip to the washer and dryer, or sleeping on the big, high bed with the Girl. "

    " Read this aloud to my 2nd grade students. It was a huge success. "

    " i love this book i remember how ms broderick read it to us in 3rd grade!!! my favorite book!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 1/22/2014

    " One more chapter to go...very entertaining so far! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 1/13/2014

    " This is a fun group of stories about a bunch of toys, from the toys' perspective. The stories are all linked and they combine to form a silly tale, naive and sincere; a view of the world that is limited to their experiences with their "little girl." It's similar to Toy Story, but with less sophistication and Pixar polish. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice T | 1/12/2014

    " Cute short read, perfect for kids who are just getting familiar with the rhythm of reading. Each chapter focuses on the three main characters, or in this case, the three main toys beloved by the little girl. Set from a point of view similar to Toy Story where the owners of the toys remains fairly out of the main story. Each chapter will let the reader get to know each character and what they're personality and philosophies may be. While I will give the author credit for creating strong distinctive personalities for all three, I was a bit surprised how realistic some of them were. The know-it-all attitude of Stingray was off-putting yet the author still made her likable enough. Lumphy's relationship with Frank, the washing machine, amuses me terribly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelli | 1/6/2014

    " A tale of three toys named Sting Ray, Lumphy the buffalo, and small red Plastic who doesn't know exactly what she is. The writing is Pooh-esque and the stories of washing machines and show and tell adventures lend themselves to brilliantly understated and funny dialogues that kids eat up but adults will like even more. "

    " Charming, touching and hilarious. Thanks, Melody. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Horace Mann Family Reading Challenge | 12/19/2013

    " This story is about 3 toys called Plastic, Lumpy and Sting Ray. The Plastic is a rubber ball, Lumpy is a buffalo and Sting Ray is a Sting Ray. W.N. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paty | 12/15/2013

    " Wonderful book to read aloud and share with children ages 5-9. Toys, like humans, have their own personalites and share their ups and downs in this delightful tale of knowing who you truly are. Thumbs up! "
