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
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.

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.
Yuval Harpaz did a great tale of developing a tale of a boy, his messy room and his imagination. This book was so realistic and reminded me of my own boys when they were young. The book is easy to read, especially good for ages 6 - 8, and also a lot fun.
I really liked Don't Let Rocky Get Away! by Yuval Harpaz and I highly recommend this book. I give it my "Grandpa Seal of Approval."
[Please note: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.]
I hope most children will enjoy this book, but as with any story that is different people's reactions to this book will vary.
Not to spoil the end, I'll just say that in order to get back home he needed to take responsibility and clean up the mess. The lovely illustrations are supporting the story and the quotes on the newspaper the monkey reads are insightful.
