You may think that Snuffy and Zoey are just your normal pair of rambunctious, sibling bear cubs living in a forest, but when they’re bored they jump into their trusty ToyBox and are transported into a World of Imagination where anything is possible!

With each book, you’ll find yourself right alongside Snuffy and Zoey on their Toybox Adventures!

Anything is possible in the World of Imagination, from stealing a dragon’s cupcakes to chasing pirates…

In this first adventure, Snuffy and Zoey come face-to-face with a cupcake-loving dragon.

My Thoughts


A storm has put stop to Snuffy and Zoey’s outside play so it’s off to the magic toybox for an adventure.  The magic transports them to a delicious cupcake mountain and who wouldn’t climb up and begin to eat? But what they don’t know is that the cupcakes belong to a dragon…..

I love this cute children’s book/comic.  It’s suitable for younger and older children and can be independently read as the comic strip format keeps the text to a minimum, without losing any of the story.  The illustrations are colourful and fun and can be used to add detail and depth to the story.

My favourite part of the book is the 10 activity pages at the end, teaching children how to draw the characters from the story using only shapes.  I work with a lot of reluctant writers and designing and writing comic books is a fantastic way to get children writing, using their drawings and imagination as inspiration.
