Edward has oodles of toys but doesn't share any of them with his little sister, Claire. She cannot ride his rocking horse, hug his teddy bear, or even think about touching his Slinky.

"They're mine!"

he says. That is, until one day when Edward finds himself stuck under his enormous pile of toys and can't move! With a little help from an unlikely ally, he learns that if he can share with others, they'll share right back with him.

Mike Reiss's wickedly funny verse and David Catrow's remarkable gift for comic illustration make this one book you'll want to share—again and again!

I love this book and so does my five year old son. We have read this many times. We both love the illustrations.

What a great book! This is probably the most requested book at bedtime. My 3 year old loves this book and because of the wonderful rhyming, has most of it memorized. A plus for him starting to read on his own someday. I HIGHLY recommend this book. Cute story, just the right length and has a good message.
