Teddy's favorite toy has the best manners, and the sickest fighting skills, and the ability to pull off a number of fierce looks.

School Library Journal - 01/01/2018 POPPreS-Gr 1—Inspired by a favorite childhood toy, this book tells the typical story of a lost and found plaything. What makes this particular version of an age-old tale stand out it that Teddy's favorite toy is a pink Barbie—esque doll whom he has named "Bren-Da, Warrior Queen of Pacifica." Not only is she Teddy's coolest toy, but she also has the best manners, the sickest fighting moves, and the ability to pull off a number of stylish looks. When Bren-Da is accidentally broken and then thrown away by the boy's mother, Teddy is heartbroken. Then, as his mother swings into action to retrieve the doll, astute readers will notice that she is really the inspiration for Bren-Da's fabulousness. VERDICT With a triumphant text declaring "Yas, queen," this is a very modern take on the lost and retrieved favorite toy. Recommended as a general purchase for children's collections.—Jasmine L.
