“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
