Loved this book!

A beautifully written and illustrated story about the love between a boy and his favorite toy, reminiscent of the Stuff of Legend series by Mike Raicht & Brian Smith from 3rd World Studios and Kate DiCamillo's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. It's a tale of bravery, friendship, and loyalty and I think is perfect for both children and the young at heart. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 144247355X, Hardcover)

From the creator of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore and The Guardians of Childhood comes an grand adventure of valor, friendship, and a look into the mysterious world of favorite toys.

In the secret realm of toys, there are many mysteries.

There is the Code of the Toys, which is as ancient as childhood.

There’s also the magic of becoming a child’s favorite, the highest honor in the Toy World.

Made by hand by Billy’s mother, Ollie is a special toy, “a toy who will matter.” He becomes Billy’s best friend, confidant, pal, and yes, Billy’s “favorite.”

But there are villains in the Toy World, and Zozo, the clown king, is the most feared. He and his toy henchman (the Creeps) have sworn to steal and imprison favorite toys until they forget their children and become forever lost.

When Ollie is toynapped, Billy must rescue his beloved favorite from Zozo’s subterranean lair in the old Carnival Place, past the park, through the woods, and into the night.

Never has a journey of ten blocks been more epic.

(retrieved from Amazon Tue, 23 Feb 2016 22:34:36 -0500)

"When a toy is bestowed with the title of "favorite," it takes on a coveted rank among the world of household things. But when a vengeful toy conspires to destroy these favorites, he must be defeated by a stuffed toy rabbit"--
