Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Have you ever wondered what it is like to be born in a toy factory and to wait for a child to fall in love with you? Rico is born amid the whirring noises of a creaky toy factory, and he is sent in a package to a toy store where a mother discovers him. Then Rico begins the most exciting adventure of his life, as he is played with and loved by a young boy. Rico and the boy are together all the time, and they share a myriad of exciting adventures from bathing together to bike rides. As the boy grows up, Rico is very proud of his young master. But one day the boy places Rico in a closet, where the sock monkey is scared and bored. He waits and waits a very long time, until the closet door finally opens and his friend, now a young man, removes the monkey. After a wash and a hug, Rico finds himself in the arms of a young girl, who happens to be the daughter of his original owner. Young readers will enjoy this lovely story, which contains a lyrical text and vivid illustrations. Once again, Golden Books has brought another "modern classic" to life. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
