{Synopsis} – Playing is serious business.

Welcome to Toy Academy: where toys learn to play. This is where action figures train to battle, stuffed animals study the art of the hug, and collectibles practice standing very, very still.

Though Grumbolt isn’t really any of those things, he’s determined to fit in. But when the Evil Toy Academy threatens to bring down his school, it’s up to Grumbolt to go where no good toy has gone before and prove he’s truly a great toy after all.

This laugh-out-loud chapter book by Brian Lynch, the writer of Minions and a writer of The Secret Life of Pets, is a classic in the making.

{My thoughts} – Grumbolt isn’t your ordinary toy. He is a stuffed critter that was created out of an advanced sewing pattern that ended up turning into an awkward project result. Grumbolt didn’t look like the pattern he was meant to look like and because of that the girl that had created him by following the pattern had tossed him into the trash. She didn’t want a stuffed critter that didn’t look anything like the package had claimed it should.

Grumbolt ends up going on an adventure and trying to find out who or what he is. In the middle of that adventure he meets some other discarded toys that help him to find his way to the Toy Academy. The Toy Academy is suppose to help and teach toys the things that they need to know in order to be successful toys for children.

While he is attending the Toy Academy some questionable things start to take place. These things cause Grumbolt and everyone else to question many of the other students. If you’d like to know what happens you’ll need to read the book.

I found this book to be a quick and fun read. I think that any child could fall in love with the character of Grumbolt, because he is just a lovable character in my opinion. If you have a child that enjoys movies like the Toy Story Series, I am sure they will fall fastly in love with this book series.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
