• I love it completely. Toys Talking is the only book which both I and my eleven-month-old daughter agree is a masterpiece - she thinks it is a delightful series of candy-colored toy portraits; I think it is unbearably poignant. A children's book for adults, or an adult book for children! Nothing else I know of more accurately describes the strange mêlée of feelings that we call, for convenience, a family

  • A charming, funny and off-beat book that will no doubt fire the imagination of [Leanne Shapton's] youngest readers

  • A mix of simple and complex, of adulthood and childhood. This is a book created out of the rich emotional landscape of parenthood ... Toys Talking is that category of book you'll read aged three, that betrays deeper layers when you reread it aged 20. It possesses a knowing humour which, years later and all grown-up, will finally make you laugh out loud
