Too Many Toys!

By Heidi Deedman
Illustrated by Heidi Deedman

From the inaugural winner of the Sebastian Walker Prize comes the story of Lulu – a little girl with too many toys! (Yes, there is such a thing!)

From the inaugural winner of the Sebastian Walker Prize, comes the warm, funny story of a little girl called Lulu who has too many toys! (Yes, there is such a thing.) Ever since Lulu was a little baby, she has had Jupiter – her lovely, cuddly, most-favourite-ever teddy bear. But with each new birthday ... she gets new toys. And with every passing Christmas ... more new toys. Very soon, Lulu's room becomes over-crowded with all kinds of mischievous toy soldiers and dolls, cowboys and doggies, monkeys and spaceships! She can barely fit in her own bed. What will Lulu do? Arresting colour and intricate comic detail abound in this picture book for modern times.

  • The beautiful interior Christmas spread makes this book ideally suited to the Christmas gift market.
  • An exciting picture book debut that will stand out for its uniquely stunning colour palette, exquisitely detailed drawings and gorgeously depicted toys - each with their own little personalities that fizz off the page!
  • Too Many Toys addresses the modern day condition of excess with humour, warmth and originality and is the perfect read for any parent who's house might look like a multi-coloured minefield of teddies, dolls and unidentified bits of plastic

About the author

Heidi Deedman originally studied sculpture in London, experimenting with a diverse range of materials such as found objects, ceramics and textiles. Drawing always stayed central to her work though, so it came as no surprise when she went on to complete Cambridge School of Art’s illustrious MA in Illustration and win the inaugural Sebastian Walker prize. She lives in London. Visit Heidi's website at
