Amy hugs her blankie and exclaims, "Mine!" and she feels just as strongly about her stuffed bear, bunny, and bird. But in this tale with a moral for prereaders, Amy's twin brothers Zack and Jack muscle in and start playing with her toys, causing the little girl great distress and leading to a tugging match over the bear. Baby Joe wants to play too, but Amy shouts "Mine!" and takes a toy away from him. With everyone miserable now, will Amy learn an important lesson about how everyone can be happy? Sue Heap's dialogue captures the outlook of preschoolers to a tee, and in her simple, childlike colored pencil and acrylic illustrations, the characters bear a passing resemblance to Charlie Brown and his pals.

"The illustrations, rendered in vibrant colored pencil and acrylic, have no background—only a simple horizon line, which keeps the focus on the characters. The human figures have sizable faces, emphasizing their expressions and emotions. Sharp-eyed readers will see that the toys themselves are troubled by the strife, and their smiling faces (and beaks) reflect their happiness when fair play resumes.... Sweet, simple."—Kirkus Reviews
