What to do when a boy won’t clean his room...The result is heavy-handed and didactic. A fairy tale that’s more morality than magic.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

Joe is a young boy who does not tidy his room. One night, before he goes to bed, he is warned that the Toy Fairy will take all of his toys away. The young boy is skeptical about this explanation, believing his father to be key in the disappearance of his possessions. But Joe is wrong. Not only does the Toy Fairy take the toys away, he also takes Joe away. After rediscovering his missing toys, he is relocated with his missing pirate ship to a home of a classmate who is living with no toys. The experience awakens compassion in the boy.
