Grumbolt isn't exactly sure what kind of stuffed animal he's supposed to be. A cat? A koala? A bear? When he gets a chance to go to Toy Academy, he realizes this is his opportunity to discover who he is, develop his purpose in life, and find a kid of his own. But Toy Academy is full of other toys, too -- toys who have secrets of their own.

Some Assembly Required is a hilarious read that would work well for a read-aloud or for reading by individual kids. The pictures are amusing, and Grumbolt is a sympathetic character who is easy to cheer for.
