Some Assembly Required (Toy Academy #1) Read Online Free - Playing is serious business.
Welcome to Toy Academy: where toys learn to play. This is where action figures train to battle, stuffed animals study the art of the hug, and collectibles practice standing very, very still.
Though Grumbolt isn't really any of those things, he's determined to fit in. But when the Evil Toy Academy threatens to bring down his school, it's up to Grumbolt to go where no good toy has gone before and prove he's truly a great toy after all.
This laugh-out-loud chapter book by Brian Lynch, the writer of Minions and a writer of The Secret Life of Pets, is a classic in the making.

I’m thinking this is better as an audiobook because I laughed out loud listening to it even though I’m about twenty years older than most middle grade readers.
It’s predictable and not overly mature, but it’s also really fun and my kids are gonna LOVE IT. :-)

This was a super fun read and suitable for all ages. The illustrations are wonderful and Lynch's humor is a delight for both kids and adults. Can't wait for the next one!

I loved this book. I laughed out loud and was taken on a wild ride with this unusual cast of toys. I was rooting for Grumbolt from the start and could relate to the struggles he faced. I think most kids will be able to relate and that is why this book will be a HUGE hit. I thought this book was b...

I think this would make a great book for younger children who aren't as interested in reading as playing with their toys. Books can sometimes be boring, especially for young readers and reading a book about toys would make reading so much more enjoyable. Even though I am in 8th grade and wouldn't...

I've followed Brian Lynch's career, to one extent or another, since he was putting "Angry Naked Pat" comics online, so it was exciting to have this book to share with my son, who is indeed about the right age for it, and a fan of both Minions and Secret Life of Pets. It was good enough that I con...

Very exciting, this is something of a first for us. We have previously read a highly abridged illustrated chapter book of 'Alice in Wonderland' but that was a little different as we'd read other picture book versions first and watched the animated movie many times. This was simply a random pick a...

If you are familiar with the humour of the Minions...you know how this is going to turn out. For an early reader book, it was surprising tongue in cheek in terms of humour, for example poking fun at toy trends through out the ages (hehe veggie warriors), vintage collector's toys fretting over bei...

Quick read for elementary level readers. The Toy Academy teaches toys how to be the best they can be in their categories.
Lots of action to keep readers interested.
Characters are introduced and developed.
First book in the series sets up the next one and still tells a complete story for readers.

I won this book on Goodreads for my grandson. It was an awesome book, that I can't wait to read to him. Grumbolt was so cute, and even though he was different he kept trying. He didn't let the other toys remarks put him down. In the end he came out the hero. So cute, hats off to Brian Lynch for a...

Aside from a few pleasurable moments, this book is mostly predictable and bland. Its best joke is ruined by its unnecessary explanation.
I can see children enjoying it but it has nothing to offer to more mature readers.
