Synopsis

Toys Talking by Leanne Shapton

A beautifully illustrated board book, Toys Talking will surprise and delight the very youngest readers In this deceptively simple board book, Leanne Shapton explores the inner life of children's toys. Designed to appeal to the very youngest readers, penguins, panda bears, stuffed dogs and cuddly cats reflect on jokes, consider the weather, and long for tomorrow to come.

Reviews

I love it completely. Toys Talking is the only book which both I and my eleven-month-old daughter agree is a masterpiece - she thinks it is a delightful series of candy-colored toy portraits
