First to flee were Ted and Dupree, then Tessa Turtle, Poncho and Mousy Dundee. Not far behind was the smallest of all, the teeny tiny reindeer that Jacob called Paul. Jacob tells his mother that he is too old for soft toys anymore and he wants to give them way. His mother washes them and hangs them on the line to dry. But wild weather sets the toys free and sends them on an exciting adventure across the garden. What will become of the toys? Will they make it to their new home safely? Will Jacob realise he will never be too old for his soft toy friends?
Claudia Woods resides on the South Coast of NSW with her partner Peter and son Jacob. She first became interested in writing and illustrating children’s stories whilst studying Primary education at university. For the past nine years she has worked as an Early Childhood Educator where she loves sharing stories with children and seeing them captivated by beautiful illustrations. The adventure of Jacob’s Toys was inspired by Claudia’s son, as she watched him outgrow many of his childhood toys. At the same time, she won some stuffed toys on a skill tester and the excitement reminded her of the magic of childhood. Claudia is currently working on the next book in the Jacob’s Toys series.
