Toybox - book review - A new experience

by Heather Farthing

Toybox by Heather Farthing is an interesting experience. The story of someone who wakes up as a rabbit in the playroom of a little girl surrounded by other talking toys. As the plot unfolds you, the rabbit, discover how you got there and why you were chosen. Then, panic reigns as the owner of the playroom arrives, in an angry fit, and all characters run and hide except you.

Though a short story, it leaves you thinking "What if..." Written in first person Toybox wakes you up in a world similar to reality but not quite real. As you try desperately to figure out what is going on and where you are your dream becomes a nightmare until you, 1st person, turn it around yourself. Toybox reminded me of a Twilight Zone episode from years ago (still in reruns) except that I liked the twist at the end of Toybox much better. Though the book ended my thoughts continued to add to the story.
