Description - The Toybreaker by Paul Rogers
Have you ever been blamed for something you didn't do? if so, you'll know how Jamie feels when he's accused of breaking other people's toys. But if it's not Jamie who's breaking them, who is it? Is it a child at all? Jamie is baffled. Throughout the town, toys are being broken - teddies' eyes are going missing, puppets' strings are tangled, and the finger of blame seems to point at Jamie. Then he meets Mr Pratchett, the toymender, who tells him the tale of the monstrous Toybreaker - a hideous creature fuelled by jealousy who roamed children's rooms before Christmas in times gone past, breaking anything, and everything which was loved. Could the Toybreaker be back? If he is to clear his name, Jamie has to find out
