Ok this is super stinking cute. It is absolutely true that it is best if you have 2 of your kids' favourite toy, but we never put ourselves in the shoes of that second toy thankfully most toys are quite content wherever they are. This is a story from the perspective of the second, backup, toy and I absolutely adore it. I will definitely have to go look for this when one of my girlfriends gets pregnant.

As a parent of four grown children and four grandchildren I know all about a special stuffed animal or blanket to sleep with. I always made my kids keep their special something in their bed and my daughter does the same with her little ones, then the chance of losing it is minimal.
However there was a time when we were traveling and my daughter then age about 5 left her blanket behind. Yikes, it was tough. We had to call the resort and have them find and then send the blanket. I think the illustrations are cute and the story is very relatable. I would recommend it and my 4 year old grandson enjoyed it. Jan 10, Plot Monster rated it liked it. Great illustrations.

However, I feel like any adult that reads this is going to have to explain that Max's behavior is unacceptable. In general, I do not like books to come with stipulations.

As a nanny I am always looking for new stories to read to my charges. This is one which they loved listening to. It is a simple idea yet very well executed.
Let's Talk About Those Bunnies In 'The Favourite'
The illustrations are lovely, the story is lovely, and I would love to purchase a copy when this is published. After a film-long struggle between Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough Rachel Weisz , lifelong friend and adviser to Queen Anne Olivia Colman , and her upstart cousin Abigail Emma Stone , newly arrived at court and wily as a fox, a decisive victory has been won. Upon returning to court, she tries to force Anne to send Abigail away, and she even threatens to reveal secret letters — scandalous letters, of course — to that old thorn Jonathan Swift.
This is the last straw for Anne, who bans her from her bedroom and eventually has her removed from the palace. But Anne brushes her off, and Sarah heads to her estate, where Godolphin advises her to write to the queen and apologize. But the critical moment is still to come. Anne waits on the letter that she expects from Sarah, the letter that would allow her to forgive; Sarah finally deigns to write said letter; and Abigail dutifully screens the mail until it arrives, at which point, sealing the fate of all three, she casts it into the fire. By the end, she has clearly done so, and that renders her victory meaningless.
Lanthimos has gone to great lengths to show that the ecosystem of the palace is a fragile one, and that its balance was finely maintained by Sarah through a remarkable mixture of statesmanship, affection, and clarity of sight. Sarah might not be a perfect person, but she is honest, and there are few things more valuable to a queen than honesty, particularly when it can be delivered in the proper way. Abigail, on the other hand, becomes a figure who would fit in beautifully in our own contemporary politics, and, probably, at any other time since man started walking upright.
In the final scene, Anne forces a defiant Abigail to rub her legs, taking hold of her hair and forcing her down. And Abigail might be a lady, but her existence is dependent on the queen. Her victory is Pyrrhic, coming at the cost of the illusion, long believed by Anne, that Abigail was a nice person, an innocent person, a sweet person — all in contrast to Sarah. Ironically, the winner might be Sarah, who is, at least, free.
And then, terrifyingly, Lanthimos adds the rabbits to this collage, and it grows trippier and more addled until we fade to black.
