Yuval Harpaz is a father of three who likes jogging, personal development, writing, photography and doodling. His stories, richly illustrated, are meant to make a difference and to help children master a new level of reading. They also teach skills that are sometimes difficult to teach solely coming from parents - and that is where his fine stories come in very handy!

Tommy arrives home from school, indifferent to home, food, and his mother and only is concerned that he can't get the door to his room open. His mother suggests he arrange his room: it is such a mess he cannot get in. Tommy blames the mess on his friends who were playing with Rocky the puppet monkey. His mother doesn't buy it and insists that Tommy clean his room or forego playing with his friends. Begrudgingly, Tommy faces the pile of mess in his room, sees the tail of Rocky his monkey puppet and pulls the tail, only to find himself in a strange new land with toys scattered every where - a land (Lost Toys Land) Rocky calls 'Welcome to Where Your Thoughts Are'. Tommy wants to know how to get home, but Rocky, a spider monkey able to move quickly, says Tommy must catch him first. Along the race Tommy sees all manner of lost toys who want to go home, but only Rocky knows that secret. Toy hippos, tractor tires and puzzle pieces join the search for Rocky and finally get an answer: clean up all the toys in Lost Toys Land and you'll be home. When Tommy awakens his mother praises him for getting his once messy room arranged nicely -and Tommy insists his `friends (the lost toys) helped him accomplish his goal.

Many fine aspects are present in this book, not the least of which is the moral behind it. But the manner in which Yuval Harpaz writes draws the reader into not only the story, but in discovering facts about many things that his writing and illustrating make accessible. Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars When your kid's room looks like a scene from "Hoarders" December 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest, my own things are not always well organized even now as an adult, and it was almost as bad when I was a kid. At least my mom was adamant that I keep my room reasonably clean with my stuff put away. In the story, young Tommy's room was a disaster area. When he started trying to organize the mess, as his mom had ordered, the mountain of toys fell on him and he was suddenly transported to the Lost Toys Land, the place where lost toys go until they find their way home. There, Tommy ran into Rocky, his toy spider monkey. Rocky was the only one there who could show Tommy the way home, but he was playing capricious and hard to get. Would Tommy find his way home, or was he fated to live there forever with all of his lost toys?

There's a valuable lesson in the story about learning to be organized and taking responsibility for one's actions. It's a lesson that should be learned early in life, or one might find oneself in an episode of the "Hoarders" TV series!

"Don't Let Rocky Get Away!" is a nice example of a "chapter book," which is a story book intended for intermediate readers, typically ages 7-10. Unlike picture books for beginning readers, a chapter book tells the story primarily through text instead of pictures. This book does have illustrations, but the illustrations only complement the story, they don't tell the story as completely as those in books for beginning readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Learning Responsiblity".......... December 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This author wrote an excellent story about children learning responsibility.... Between the developmental ages of 6-8 children should start to pick up after themselves and learning to clean their room..As parents by the end of our busy days we are exhausted..Tommy comes home from school and his room is such a mess with toys he can hardly get his bedroom door open..Mom asks Tommy to clean his room as he blames the mess on friends...She tells Tommy the next time have you friends help you clean before they leave and stop giving her excuses..

Tommy goes into the messy pile of toys to look for Rocky his spider monkey..Grabs him by the tail and knocks to the floor..Tommy wakes up in a strange land with toys scattered all around him...Rocky is sitting in a tree reading a newspaper...This is where little boys and girls wake-up in the the Lost Toy's Land....Now all the toys and Tommy are trying to get home...But Rocky the monkey won't tell them until he gets caught....Will Tommy and the lost toys every find their way back to Tommy's room as it gets late and starts missing his Mom...

The illustrations are always cute, bright and colorful...The author also teaches you what a Spider Monkey is and why they are so fast....My niece was giggling over everybody chasing Rocky as he is swinging from the trees....

"We are not defined by our skills, but by what we do with them"..

5.0 out of 5 stars I Feel Like I Have A Monkey On My Back February 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tommy is a kid just like may others, too many toys and animals and they are strewn all over his room. Tommy tells his mom that his two friends who were over yesterday made the mess, and they did not clean up before going home. Tommy's mom was not pleased with that remark. She told Tommy to go to his room and clean it before they ate. Tommy went into his room, feeling sorry for himself. He decided to look for his monkey in the mess. He found the monkey than all of a sudden they were in a new place.

The author, Yuval Harpaz, has written a book with an insightful story. Most children, and all their parents will be able to identify with Tommy's mother, and the mess that toys can create. When Tommy and his monkey fall into a new place, their adventure begins. This is a wonderful story where Tommy meets old friends. The illustrator was not named, however, the pictures are bright and bold and depict the story of Tommy's adventures. There are many lessons to be learned in this story. All of them have a reasonable answer and ending. All children will be interested to know how this story moves on. Note: I was given this book to read and review.
