The year is 1944. As Allied forces fight the enemy on EuropeÕs war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a childÕs bedroom in Brooklyn. When the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark, the childÕs playthings, led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel, band together to stage a daring rescue. On their perilous mission they will confront the boyÕs bitter and forgotten toys, as well as betrayal in their own ranks. Can they save the boy from the forces of evil, or will they all perish in the process? The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance.
This edition includes a brand-new story featuring the ColonelÕs war journal, maps, sketches, and other original material!
