Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - L. A. Gallaway
This early chapter book tells the story of Toby, the boy who fell out of a tree and lost his laughter. Toby was trying to impress his friend by climbing a tree to save his kite. He climbed up; the limb broke and he fell with it through what he describes as the tunnel of death. Luckily Toby survives but he finds that he has broken his femur, elbow, ribs, and he is missing his spleen (which had to be removed due to internal bleeding). Worst of all, Toby thinks he has lost his laugh. At first he is sure it was taken out with his spleen, which is described in his dictionary as "the seat of laughter." By the end of the book he learns that he is suffering from shock. Once Toby understands what is wrong, he begins to recover with the help of his family and friends. This sixty-two-page chapter book is divided into six chapters, each with black-and-white illustrations that support the text. It does a good job explaining the emotional complications that follow a serious injury. Reviewer: L. A. Gallaway

"Jean Lemieux ... and Sophie Casson ... have created a book that can comfort and entertain ... Toby Laughs Last is an important story about how serious accidents can be. Recommended."
