Sometimes, in searching for one book you discover another, and realize it is a treasure.  Caledonia happened on this book while searching through the works of William Joyce for Magicland, and fell in love.  Now, you can too, and it will be totally "YUM."

In the secret realm of toys, there are many mysteries.There is the Code of the Toys, which is as ancient as childhood. There’s also the magic of becoming a child’s favorite, the highest honor in the Toy World.Made by hand by Billy’s mother, Ollie is a special toy, “a toy who will matter.” He becomes Billy’s best friend, confidant, pal, and yes, Billy’s “favorite.”

But there are villains in the Toy World, and Zozo, the clown king, is the most feared. He and his toy henchman (the Creeps) have sworn to steal and imprison favorite toys until they forget their children and become forever lost.

When Ollie is toy-napped, Billy must rescue his beloved favorite from Zozo’s subterranean lair in the old Carnival Place, past the park, through the woods, and into the night.

Never has a journey of ten blocks been more epic.

Caledonia Skytower begins William Joyce's adventure, live in voice.
