Lulu has so many toys she can't find room for them all. She needs a plan!

Ever since Lulu was a little baby, she's had Jupiter, her cuddly and most-favorite-ever teddy bear. But with each new birthday she gets new toys. And every Christmas she gets even more toys. Lulu's toys are absolutely everywhere! And now she can't even fit into her own bed. So Lulu decides to throw a very special party for all her toys—and all her friends. Charming and humorous, here is a story sure to resonate with toy-hungry children and slightly indulgent parents everywhere.

Praise For Too Many Toys!

Lulu comes across as a reasonable child: “What are we going to do, Jupiter?” she wonders. “I can’t play with everybody!” Her philanthropic solution, the Great Toy Giveaway, may not be embraced by every reader, yet it serves as a practical conversation-starter.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Children will be captivated by the later pictures of all those toys, individually good-natured little dolls and animals that become an overwhelming crowd cavorting about Lulu’s room at bedtime. A good read-aloud choice, this picture book leaves children with something to think about as well.

A polished debut for this British author/illustrator, who might invent more challenges for the newly minimalist Lulu.
