From Booklist

Prowling through the attic, Jed discovers an old toy that had belonged to his father—a red tractor driven by a little farmer. Magically, the rug by his bed turns into a dirt field and day after day, the farmer converses with Jed while tending his solitary crop—an amazing, mechanical-looking vine that eventually yields an enormous pumpkin. They haul it to the toys' county fair, where the judges award Jed a Grand Champion ribbon identical to the one his father had received as a boy. Nash creates interesting effects digitally in the artwork by drawing Jed and his world in strokes of softly shaded colors and creating the fantasy elements, such as the farmer and the many toys-come-to-life, by using sharply defined edges and flatter colors. Fine for reading aloud, this well-imagined story features distinctive illustrations and, for once, a farm-inspired theme that isn't centered on barnyard animals. Phelan, Carolyn

Format: Hardcover
Scott Nash produces the fun colorful drawings for Andrew P. Pelletier's THE TOY FARMER, a fine picturebook tale of a boy whose toy farmer comes to life. First the toy comes to life - then Jed's bedroom begins to transform to meet the farmer's environment. Jed wins first prize at the county fair with a big pumpkin from his room - but when he returns triumphant, the toy farmer seems to have vanished. Gorgeous full-page drawings are fun embellishments.

I bought this book for my grandson, who also liked the "Flat Stanley" books. He enjoyed this story, and the artwork is so great!
