This is a gentle, optimistic story about a bully who gets his comeuppance, from a number one author-illustrator pair! 'I'm A One. I'm big A One. Let me tell you, A One rules'. But without other people to wind his key, A One, big A One, is a useless, no-good No One! Luckily, Maddy and Sally and Sid find the perfect way to show the bully how much he really needs them. Suitable for even the youngest children, Michael Rosen and Bob Graham's toy story captures the nursery school dynamic with warmth and insight. Michael Rosen and Bob Graham are the award-winning pairing behind the acclaimed "This is Our House" (9781406305647).

From Booklist:

When a group of toys is left alone for the day, A-One, a very bossy windup soldier, takes command. Neither his duck, doll, nor pig subjects are able to live up to his expectations, and so he marches them around, makes fun of them, and purloins their belongings. As he continues his attempts to assert his authority, though, he notices that the other toys’ gentle teasing shows that self-assurance is more powerful than his bully’s bravado. As a smile soon cracks on A-One’s face, he realizes he wouldn’t be anywhere without his companions, and so he returns the stolen items and rejoins the forgiving gang as an equal. The pen-and-watercolor illustrations are filled with expressive characters and Graham’s signature, whimsical details, such as the stuffed pig’s snout ring. This simple, affecting story will be welcome anywhere that more than two young kids are gathered together and where laughter, not mean words, is the lingua franca. Preschool-Grade 1. --Andrew Medlar
