Some folks get jewels for Christmas, but the lucky ones who receive The Toy Shoppe will get a jewel of a present. It's a charming and simple story of Longley's Toy Shoppe, a magical place where toys come to life. Enter the Scrooge-like Mr. Baxter, who plans to turn the shop into a hamburger joint. Based on Kenny Rogers' 30-city touring play and musical, the tale then unfolds and concludes with a surprise.
A special CD, included with every book, features Kenny singing numbers that are inventively coordinated with various scenes in this 32-page, beautifully illustrated tale.
As the saying goes, this one is for kids of all ages.
