The story ends with Thing-Thing ending up with the perfect owner!

One of my favorite children's books of all times. A spoiled kid who has everything reacts with disdain when his desperate parents present him with a stuffed animal that's not quite a dog, cat, squirrel, rabbit, or mouse. As poor Thing-Thing falls helplessly past window after window of the high-rise hotel building, we see tiny vignettes about what's happening in each room and how the sight of Thing-Thing affects each person who sees it. I couldn't believe how much depth of story Fagan and Debon packed into each 2-page spread, with so few words. Thing-Thing finally stops falling and discovers that the world may be a pretty nice place after all.

Started out not so good but got better and better and ended up being a pretty good little story . Illustrated nicely also .

This charming story whisks by with artful words and the fun collage/gouache illustrations of an unloved toy thrown out the window.

I was worried about this book as it started talking about a spoiled child but the story did progress and ended well. Loved the concept of random detailing.
