The Underground Toy Society by Jessica D. Adams
The Underground Toy Society decided to go out on Halloween night to help lost, lonely, and forgotten toys. They ended up falling into a hole that did not belong to their friend Murry Mole, who helps them dig tunnels underground so they won’t be seen by people. Will Murry Mole rescue the toys before they find out what is making a mysterious hissing sound?
I really liked the story. Told in rhyming verses that children will be drawn to. A perfect Halloween read for little readers/listeners that is not scary. I wasn’t a fan of the illustrations but they are simple and bright and I’m sure young children will enjoy them.
