Twig and Turtle 2: Toy Store Trouble (Hardcover)
Having fun isn't supposed to be such hard work!
In their tiny house, the rule is Twig and Turtle are each allowed to have five toys. With a new toy store opening in town, the rule is creating a big problem--getting a new toy means giving up one they love. But when the girls realize that the owner has very old-fashioned ideas about who should play with what kinds of toys, changing her mind might be the biggest problem of all.
The second book in the Twig and Turtle series, Toy Store Trouble tackles real-life challenges with humor and heart, and is a perfect pick for fans of Ivy and Bean and Judy Moody.

"Jacobson again shows her strength in creating problems seemingly specific to one setting but experienced by many children; without a hint of didacticism, she allows Twig to reach a creative solution to the problem. Short chapters, generous use of dialogue, and text-supporting spot art scaffold the reading for newly independent chapter book readers. This series reaffirms the old adage that good things come in small packages." —The Horn Book
