It's a rainy day, but not a single toy in the toy box seems fun enough for our adventuresome little girl. She tries everything from trucks to telescopes, puzzles to pianos, but nothing does the trick until she lets her creative sparks fly. In the spirit of the first two charmers, Too Purpley! and Too Pickley!, Reidy's sprightly text is again beautifully illustrated with Leloup's stylish art. Preschoolers will love to see and say all the games and toys the little girl tries, and adults will appreciate the celebration of imagination that is the best solution of all.

In bright, busy digital spreads, she unpacks toys from a box, but discovers that a puzzle is “too piecey,” a piano is “too plinky,” and riding in a red wagon is “too zoomy.” This high-energy outing sends a clear message: sometimes the simplest toy is the best one.
