"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.

Review:

Praise for the Toys trilogy:

"This charming book makes ideal bedtime reading." --The Wall Street Journal

"A sure hit for reading aloud and a classic in the making." --The San Francisco Chronicle

"Jenkins deftly penetrates the natural anxieties of childhood--the phobias, the insecurities, the self-doubts--without playing them down." --The New York Times Book Review

"Has the nostalgic feel of a children's book from an earlier time--part Winnie the Pooh, part Hitty and part bedtime book. A perfect selection for family read-alouds." --Bookpage

"A blend of Toy Story and the stories of Jonny Gruelle and A.A. Milne. Young readers will enjoy exploring the warm, secret world of toys." --Kirkus Reviews

"There's a heavy fragrance of A.A. Milne to the narrative, not just in concept but in style and in details such as Plastic's fondness for Pooh-like "hums," but the book has a cuddly sturdiness all its own." --The Bulletin

"A timeless story of adventure and friendship to treasure aloud or independently. Wholly satisfying, this may well leave readers expecting to see the Velveteen Rabbit peeking in the bedroom window and smiling approvingly." --Booklist, Starred

"An utterly delightful peek into the secret lives of toys. Here is a book bound to be a favorite with any child who has ever adored an inanimate object." --School Library Journal, Starred

"You'll love Lumphy, and StingRay, and Plastic. You'll laugh over their choice of birthday presents and hold your breath over Plastic's encounter with the Possible Shark. Most of all, you'll never forget these three. I know I won't." --Patricia Reilly Giff, two-time Newbery Honor-winning author
