Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This beautiful collection unites some of the very best stories about toys that come to life. Adventurous dolls, sweet teddy bears, and a jack-in-the-box star in various tales. The classic toy characters of Raggedy Ann and The Steadfast Tin Soldier appear along with newer toys including Russell Hoban's adventurous tin horseman. A lovely new version of "The Nutcracker" brings up the rear of this wonderful collection, which is filled with Clark's spectacularly rich illustrations. Designed to be read aloud, these stories will delight pre-literate as well as beginning readers. 2000, Kingfisher, Ages 3 to 7, $17.95. Reviewer: Rebecca Joseph
