Filled with bold, captivating illustrations and a heartwarming tale, The Perfect Toy Soldier is the story of a one-armed toy soldier and his search for a forever home.
Mr. Murray, the toymaker, takes great pride in his perfect toys. But Owen, the one-armed toy soldier, is not perfect: he has only one arm, and his nose is kind of too big. Longing to have a home to call his own, Owen is rejected again and again by children in favor of other perfect toys.
But when a little boy with a missing arm sees Owen, he knows the toy soldier is just like him—perfect.
Owen’s achingly heartfelt journey explores one’s longing for acceptance and understanding in the face of a physical disability… and also the potential for love and hope.
