Shelf Lookout: Toys in Space| February 6, 2013
Mini Grey, who has won a bazillion awards (most, but not all, in her home country of the UK) is set to release her new picture book Toys in Space later this spring. In this sci-fi toy adventure, a group of dolls, robots, dinosaurs, and others are left outside to gaze at the sky one star-filled night. Before they know it, they’re flying in a spaceship, meeting aliens, and making friends across the universe. What little boy wouldn’t love a book about toys, robots, dinosaurs, and aliens. Throw in a doll and a pink horse/pony to invite the ladies. Plus, if the cover is any indication, there is a little baby sheep involved, and we all know that anything British involving sheep (Shaun the Sheep, Russell the Sheep, When Sheep Cannot Sleep) stands a good chance of entertaining the lot. Cheers!
