I love that in spite of a lifetime of reading, there are still gems like this one to discover.  Books that I missed in my childhood but that I can meet and share with my children in their childhoods.  And I am sure that I will still be doing the same when my girls have kids of their own!

This is a lovely tale of a forgotten toy sitting on the shelf at a toy shop, waiting for an owner.  He is lonely until one day along comes a little girl who falls in love with him and takes him home.
