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!

Benjy looks like Abraham Lincoln as only Catrow can evoke.

Even Catrow’s flamboyantly over-the-top art can’t completely rescue this superficial cautionary tale from the heap of mediocre, heavy-handed takes on the theme.
