Waiting for the doctor can be nerve-wracking, even for toys. As six injured playthings wait their turn to be called into a forbidding door, their growing apprehension is apparent on their faces. Each time, before the doctor calls, "Next please," the door opens and one happy toy comes bounding out, good as new. That doesn't comfort the last toy in line-a wooden boy with a broken nose. But when it's his turn, the doctor is warm and friendly.

"Your nose again? Don't worry. We'll fix you right up," he says.

Kids will love poring over the pictures to identify each toy's problem and the different ways they handle the wait-some calmly, some by standing on their heads.

Winner of the Bologna International Book Fair's Premio Bologna Ragazzi Award, this charming book is the perfect companion for every child going to a doctor.

Illustrated by Norman Judge
