Find out why Santa issues his first every TOY RECALL, and discover what happens next…
Thingy came to live with us
last year, on Christmas Eve.
He looked so cute when he arrived,
but soon we wished he’d leave!
The Top of the Wardrobe Gang are a close-knit team of book-writing cuddly toys. When Santa Claus delivers Thingy, a small but very naughty cuddly toy, they aren’t particularly happy about it. In fact, after putting up with his bad behavior for months, they even decide to send him away to live somewhere else!
When Thingy’s bad behavior is discovered by Santa, however, this unusual family finds out just how much they all love their annoying new member, and what lengths they will go to to keep him safe.
This story is sure to become a favorite at bedtime, especially during the build up to Christmas.
Written in a smooth rhyming rhythm, it is a great “read aloud” book for adults to enjoy reading to younger children. The story is brightly illustrated on every page, and the verses are short and simple enough for beginner readers to tackle.
Kids can take P.D. Monkey’s challenge and see if they can find the spotted sock hidden on every page. For extra fun, a few simple puzzles are included after the story

Melinda Kinsman lives on a small peninsular called The Wirral, in North West England. She loves climbing mountains and rock-climbing (both abroad, and in her local mountains of Snowdonia), and she has always had a soft-spot for cuddly toys!
Due to health issues, Melinda has to lie down a lot each day. She spends most of that time using her iPad to write and illustrate her books. (Drawing can be especially challenging, as she often needs to keep the iPad steady by balancing it with one leg up in the air – much to the amusement of her family!)
Melinda originally wrote a book of poems for her niece many years ago, but she never dreamed of trying to publish it, or of trying to illustrate the book herself. The advent of ebooks and handheld tablets now makes self-publishing an exciting possibility for her!
The Top of the Wardrobe Gang books are credited to both Melinda and a motley crew of cuddly toy characters. This bunch of cuddly toys live on the Top of the Wardrobe. (They like to call this the “penthouse suite”!) They enjoy reading, and they wanted to try writing their own books.
Most of the cartoon gang characters are based on “real” members of Melinda’s cuddly toy family.You can find out more about Melinda, the gang, and their books from their website at http://topofthewardrobegang.weebly.com
