Steve Cox's illustrations complement and bring a sparkling perspective to the timeless lyrics of Tom Paxton's, The Marvelous Toy. As with the marvelous new toy, the colors are bright and establish a mood of delight and wonderment in a toy that "went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped and whirr when it stood still." Paxton sings the lyrics on the CD accompanying the book along with two other tunes: Let the Wild Wind Blow, All the Children (DLN).

The Post & Courier

If you don't recognize the title, it won't take long for the words to begin tickling your memories.

Tom Paxton's "The Marvelous Toy" folk song is a childhood favorite for millions. With lyrics like "It went zip! when it moved/And bop! when it stopped/And whirr! when it stood still," this song celebrates a child's sense of wonderment.

Recording artists including John Denver and Peter, Paul and Mary entertained fans for decades with its energetic lyrics.

In this picture book adaptation, a father comes home with a new toy for his son. His son doesn't know what it is but knows it's amazing. The boy owns quite a few toys, as evidenced in the pictures, but none capture his imagination like this marvelous toy. As the last page turns, the boy is an adult handing the toy down to his son, and the excitement continues.

Steve Cox brings the marvelous toy to life with vibrant colors and energy. He illustrates the father and son well, but keeps them subdued and basic so that the focus is always on the toy and the action.

The nicest touch is that he never shows us the entire toy, only allowing us glimpses and streaks of color.
