Joshua's toys lay all over the place, and it drives his father crazy!
This funny book for children, and parents alike, is about a young boy named Joshua and his many toys.
Joshua has so many toys he doesn't know where to put them all, and so he leaves them laying all over the house. His dad, constantly hurting himself or tripping over them, loses his patience, and finally builds Joshua a beautiful toy box for all his treasures to go.
The ending is unpredictable and very touching.
Illustrations are lively, colourful and fun. They add beautifully to the richness of the text and create a great reading experience.

Startled, Joshua runs to his parents’ bedroom where he finds his mom standing up on the bed and his dad hopping on one leg, clutching his big toe.
- You guys woke me up, Joshua says.
- You left your toy mouse trap underneath our bed, says his dad, angrily.
- Sorry daddy, replies Joshua, is that where it was? I thought it was lost forever.

A Place For All My Stuff
By Andre’ Damphousse
In Joshua’s first book ( as others are coming!), A Place For All My Stuff, we learn of a caring and endearing relationship between a father and a son. Andre’ Damphousse tells of the father son relationship using a heartwarming lesson.
All of us who have had children have stepped on that occasional toy left out on the floor, leaving us with a bruised heel or stubbed toe. The premise of the book is one that delights as you learn of the love between a father and a son that is born out of a problem that is well resolved
In this multicultural tale of a forgetful child, the irony lies in the reciprocal gift giving between Joshua and his Father. Time and again, as an innocent child’s memory serves, Joshua leaves his toys out for his family to trip over. His father loses patience and his temper upon the discovery of these toys left in the house where they don’t belong.
The father decides to build a lovely, large toy chest as a gift to Joshua at Christmas, to help him keep his toys in their respective place. What the father does not realize is that Joshua has in turn come up with his own loving reminder for his father. Joshua decides to build a small box in which his dad can keep his temper, a temper that would flare at times whenever Joshua left his unattended toys all over the house.
As the mother of three children who have indeed left their toys lying around for stubbed toes, and bruised heels, I found this to be a heartwarming tale with a nice solution. This book paints the relationship between a father and a son in a constructive and loving way. It touches on a problem that lies with many child/parent relationships...Put those toys away!
