Toys, like children, sometimes get hurt, and Helen Cooper lets readers know how they feel when it happens in this charming book of four stories. Tim's favorite playthings are a teddy bear, a stuffed frog, a duck on wheels, and a piggy bank, and each of them has a trauma to endure. Bear inadvertently ends up in the washing machine. Frog loses all his stuffing one night. Duck has a bit of a crash, as does Pig, who's knocked off his shelf. But each toy recovers from his injury and is no less loved by Tim, even if, in some cases, they look a little worse for wear. This generous picture book, cozily illustrated by Helen Cooper, maintains a rhythmic storytelling pace through all eighty pages, and will be meaningful to any child who's ever broken a toy (is there one who hasn't?).
