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. Grady Harp, December 13

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.

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.

At one level this book can be read as a story about a rather untidy boy who uses his imagination to make the tidying of his room more fun, but the end result is a book both weird and wonderful. Tommy is trapped in the lost toys land and tries to catch his naughty spider monkey toy to learn the secret of how to get back.
I hope most children will enjoy this book, but as with any story that is different people's reactions to this book will vary.

Children's book: Don't Let Rocky Get Away! (Parents Library Collection, Stories about toys, Values and principles, Children's Books Ages 6-8, Moral stories
Illustrated colorful children's book and with a review you can get extra content.
Tommy is not allowed to go out to play til he cleans his room. He tries to blame it on his friends that came over the other day. He can barely even get into his room.
Rocky the spider monkey is on the run and he knows how to get back to Tommy's room. Tommy meets other toys he's tossed aside and they want to go back to his room also. They all chase the monkey, he will tell them if they catch him.
Love how they all pitch in to work together. Love moral of the story.
