What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Edward has oodles of toys but doesn’t share any of them with his little sister, Claire. She cannot ride his rocking horse, hug his teddy bear, or even think about touching his Slinky. “They’re mine!” he says. That is, until one day when Edward finds himself stuck under his enormous pile of toys and can’t move! With a little help from an unlikely ally, he learns that if he can share with others, they’ll share right back with him. Mike Reiss’s wickedly funny verse and David Catrow’s remarkable gift for comic illustration make this one book you’ll want to share—again and again!

The Book Snob Mom's Rating

This story has great cadence (which I’m a huge fan of) and the busy, quirky, somewhat wild illustrations give plenty of opportunities for finding hidden treasures that you might not initially notice on a quick read. Sibling rivalry, sharing and forgiveness blend beautifully into a funny story that seems just as common as the ordinary afternoon at home, and equally beautiful.
