Tin Toys

The stunning quality of the illustrations, combined with an old fashioned charm and a very modern sense of humour means that My Book Corner believes Tin Toys will be a perfect one for Christmas, No! too soon a great present!

This picture book begins nice and calmly.  A few paragraphs on each pagecarefully set the scene.  Then the toys spring in to action on a mission to find the key to wind up the old toy - Space Ride.

This is when Whatley's sense of humour also springs in to action!

My Book Corner loves the way they portray the toys making their way across to the sleeping shop keeper ... very, very carefully!  Buster winking made us all giggle - well, he is a tin toy.  Genius!

There are too many laugh out loud moments to mention here - great elements of dry, subtle humour which is a fantastic bonus for adult readers too.  You are going to really enjoy this one.

" 'Anything for a laugh,' said Teeth,

which was about all he could do really."

I would love to write a children's book like this - clever, witty, entertaining and pure fun - brilliant!

The Essentials

Publisher Blurb
Christmas Eve is drawing close. High on a shelf in an old toy shop, the wind-up Space Ride is gathering dust. It hasn't worked in years. The tin toys remember how bright, how shining, how exhilarating the Space Ride was. But the new toys don't believe them. The tin toys are determined: this Christmas, they'll prove that even old toys can be magical.
