Too Many Toys!

By Heidi Deedman

From the inaugural winner of the Sebastian Walker Prize comes the story of Lulu – a little girl with too many toys! (Yes, there is such a thing!)

From the inaugural winner of the Sebastian Walker Prize, comes the warm, funny story of a little girl called Lulu who has too many toys! (Yes, there is such a thing.) Ever since Lulu was a little baby, she has had Jupiter – her lovely, cuddly, most-favourite-ever teddy bear. But with each new birthday ... she gets new toys. And with every passing Christmas ... more new toys. Very soon, Lulu's room becomes over-crowded with all kinds of mischievous toy soldiers and dolls, cowboys and doggies, monkeys and spaceships! She can barely fit in her own bed. What will Lulu do? Arresting colour and intricate comic detail abound in this picture book for modern times.

Reviews

'Heidi Deedman’s nostalgic pastel illustrations are perfect for an old-fashioned story, gently warning about some of the disadvantages of over-consumption even at junior level.' Radar (The Independent)

'Too Many Toys is a simple and easy-to-read story that teaches a very valuable lesson about appreciation and altruism, as well as the underrated gift of giving. Heidi Deedman, the inaugural winner of the Sebastian Walker Prize, is a talented illustrator with a singular, energetic style that will appeal to toddlers and preschool-age children. It’s a must-read post Christmas Day!' Junior

'This is a great picturebook to read in the aftermath of Christmas. The playful artwork keeps the narrative light, but text and artwork nonetheless convey an important message about consumerism, the value of sharing and that one all-important toy which means the world to a child.' Library Mice
