Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

This small-format pop-up book features paper replicas of antique toys, handsomely set against solid backgrounds. For each toy, Lo Monaco supplies a brief commentary, written from a child's perspective. "Tuff, tuff, tuff! What noise the motor makes!" he writes of an orange tractor and trailer with a tiny farmer at the helm. Other toys include a fire truck with eight firefighters, a mechanical boat, and a pair of pull-along dogs. A final pop-up shows all of the toys scattered across the floor of the child's playroom ("I'll clean up my room tomorrow. Goodnight, my toys!"). A playful tour of some beloved playthings that makes each one feel special-almost like museum pieces. Ages 3-up. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
