What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

For nearly half a century, “The Marvelous Toy” has enchanted children and adults alike. A simple tale about a mysterious, magical, and mystical toy that a father gives to his son—and that eventually gets passed down to the next generation—it celebrates a child’s sense of wonder. Featuring incredible and wildly imaginative art by Steve Cox, the story is now as amazing to look at as it always has been to listen to. Parents, grandparents, and friends will remember this classic from their own youth—and joyfully share it with their own children. And just like the boy whose “eyes nearly popped right out of his head,” young readers will give “squeals of glee” at the magic of the artwork and this one-of-kind tale.
