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.

& Taylor

One by one, injured toys are called from the waiting room and sent out as good as new, until only the fifth one is left.
While anxiously awaiting his turn in the waiting room among other broken toys, the wooden boy with the broken nose fears what the friendly doctor may do to him once his name is called and so needs extra reassurance before taking his turn.
