Somewhere over the rainbow and just off the Yellow Brick Road stands Toy City, formerly known as Toy Town. And things are not going well for the city's inhabitants. There have been outbreaks of STC - Spontaneous Toy Combustion - and there are strange signs and portents in the Heavens.

Preachers of Toy City's many religions are predicting that the End Times are approaching and that a Toy City Apocalypse will soon come to pass. But can this possibly be true, or is there a simple explanation - an alien invasion, for instance.

With the body count rising and the forces of law and order baffled, it is the time for a hero to step forward and attempt to save the day. Well, two heroes actually, Eddie Bear, Toy City Private Eye and his loyal sidekick, Jack: our courageous twosome are about to face their biggest challenge yet, to save not only toykind, but the world of mankind too.

Which should keep them out of the pub for a while.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A gleefully mad collision between self-referential movie script and gumshoe noir/alien-abduction parody . . . Inspired lunacy that will be relished by anyone with a taste for humor in the bawdy, irreverent, smart-alecky, wisecracking British style." "Kirkus Reviews""
"What you're getting is vintage Rankin. Booze sodden private dick private Eddie Bear is a marvellous creation." "Starburst""
""The Toyminator" has enough running jokes, crazy footnotes, and toilet humor to keep even the hardcore fans happyand keep the new reader chuckling with delight too. It's mad, but wonderfully funny. A typically entertaining, rude, and quite bizarre Robert Rankin novel." "SFX""
"Wacky and slightly peverse. If the title makes you smile, play spot-the-film references." "Times""

“Amazing sequel”

This book has been the perfect sequel to THCBOTA and Rankin is a genius. The humour actually made me laugh out loud which is very hard for most books.
