Amazon.com is listing a new children's book, "Toy Story Toon Pictureback", to be published by Random House/Disney on August 9. The publishers' description of the book (since removed) reveals that it is based on Pixar's forthcoming Hawaii-centric Toy Story toon and provides a good synopsis of the short's plot.
Bonnie is off to Hawaii, and Barbie and Ken are excited to go along on their first tropical vacation! But when they're accidentally left behind, it's up to Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the toys to create a Hawaiian paradise right in Bonnie's room.Based on the latest animated short featuring the toys from Disney/Pixar Toy Story, this full-color storybook includes punch-out postcards that girls and boys ages 3-7 will love sending to their friends!
So the toys aren't actually travelling to the Aloha State! Oh, well.
An August publication date is further evidence that this will be the Toy Story short attached to Cars 2 on June 24. Earlier this year, the Day & Night picture book was published around the same time in August, after the short had debuted with Toy Story 3 in June.
