A humorous but important picturebook about children’s desire to have too many toys.
Every parent is familiar with this problem – an ever-growing number of children’s toys. Spilling out of every drawer and closet, bubbling out of couch cushions, toys occupy every bit of space in the house. Whether a thoughtful gift from a relative or an instant purchase at the store’s checkout in stores, it’s a tricky issue that is rarely discussed in children’s books. In this picturebook, the boy wishes to have all the toys in the world. As they say, be careful what you wish for. The next day he wakes up to discover piles of toys in his room. Happy at first, he then quickly realises that the toys have invaded the whole city disrupting people’s lives. Will he be able to fix it? Approaching this topic in a humorous way, Victoria Popova manages to send an important message without sounding too edifying.
