Too Many Toys!
Publisher: Walker Books
When she is a baby, Lulu is given a very special teddy bear. She names him Jupiter and he becomes her one-and-only favourite toy. As Lulu grows, so does her toy collection. With every passing birthday and Christmas, she acquires more and more toys - until eventually she has nowhere to put them and cannot possibly play with them all.
Something has to be done - so Lulu comes up with a generous plan to reduce her number of unwanted toys and make everybody happy.
This gentle, humorous tale about the excesses of modern childhood is accompanied by delightfully detailed illustrations in soft, muted tones. A charming debut picture book from a talented new author/illustrator.
