Review: All of the world’s favorite characters are back in a new sequel to the Toy Story series. Woody, Buzz and the rest of the gang are being donated to a daycare center because Andy is heading to college. What they discover at the daycare center is just another crazy adventure. Toy Story 3 the junior novelization is adapted by Jasmine Jones.
Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the gang still want to be played with, and they want to play with Andy. Andy is going away to college though, so Andy prepares to put them in the attic when his mom takes the bag the curb instead as trash! The toys soon escape that mess but, uh oh, more trouble. Now, they’re being donated to the Sunnyside Daycare center. They meet lots of new and friendly toys, but some of them are holding dark secrets. When Woody tries to escape the crazy daycare center, he winds up in one of the girl’s back packs and goes home with her! He then learns the start of how the toys got dark secrets and why they are keeping them. Meanwhile Buzz and the rest of the gang are being held captive by the once friendly toys. I guess you will have to read the rest of this book to find out what happens in this adventurous sequel.
I really think the story is great, but it is kind of a spoiler if you haven’t seen the movie yet. What I love is that the story really has a twist where you discover the true characters. It also is cool because there are many new characters such as Lotso the Teddy bear and Ken, the Barbie. Each new character has a secret, some of the secrets are good and some are bad. This book is also cool because it has pages in the middle that are picture clips from the movie! I like this book also because it includes a lot of details and subplots. One of the events is where Barbie has to distract Ken from the other toys who are trying to save Buzz. Also, if you have seen the commercials for Toy Story 3, this book explains what is happening in them and why. This book is very enjoyable. It has a bigger font size so it is an easy read for little kids and for older people. It is a good book to read in the car or for a bedtime story. This book is truly marvelous.
