“Spencer has too many toys and David Shannon's wonderfully bold illustrations show us just how many. As Spencer decides which toys he can part with by putting them in a big empty box, he realizes that perhaps he can part with the toys, but the box, well, that's another story. Children will relate to this humorous story.”
— Lisa Fabiano, Wellesley Booksmith, Wellesley, MA

Description


Spencer has too many toys! His father trips over them, his mother falls over them, and the house is overflowing with junk. Now its time to give some of the mountain of goodies away, but Spencer finds it hard. In the end, he fills a box, but decides the one toy he can't part with is the box!
