Playing is serious business.

Grumbolt is a weird little hand-made stuffed animal: his arms are two different lengths, his head is too big, and no what knows what he is. But he's sure he has the potential to be something great — to be someone's toy.

So when he reaches Toy Academy, he's determined to prove that he can be just as much of a hero as the best action figure. (Too bad he's assigned to the Plush major and has to sit through Tea Party 101 and Intro to Bed Time Stories.)

But when the Evil Toy Academy threatens to bring down his school, it's up to Grumbolt to go where no good toy has gone before and prove he's truly a great toy after all.Destined to be a classic, this is a laugh-out-loud story about trying to fit in — and learning you're stand out.

Raves & reviews:

Advance praise for Toy Academy:

"Brian Lynch is fast on his way to becoming a national treasure. He writes all of your favorite movies, your favorite comic books, and now what is sure to become one of your favorite chapter books. And Grumbolt is the best kind of hero: imperfect, scrappy, and very, very funny." — Michael Ian Black, actor, comedian, and writer
