A few weeks ago I shared a list of books that had been posted to Amazon, providing titles and release dates for publications related to Toy Story 4. I’m happy to say that more books have been added to the site, and there’s quite a long list of new titles.
Here are the latest additions:

After an introduction to art tools and materials, a series of drawing exercises invites artists to warm up and learn a few basic drawing techniques. Then the real fun begins! You’ll find step-by-step drawing projects for Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Bo Peep, Rex, Lotso, and more!
The easy-to-follow instructions in this book will guide you through the drawing process; each step builds upon the last until the Toy Story character is finally complete. You just need to grab a pencil, a piece of paper, and your copy of Learn to Draw Disney•Pixar Toy Story; then flip to the character you want to draw. You’ll draw the basic shapes shown in step one, and move on to step two, step three, and keep going! The new lines in each step are shown in blue, so you’ll know exactly what to draw. After adding all the details in each step, darken the lines you want to keep and erase the rest. Finally, add color to your drawing with felt-tip markers, colored pencils, watercolors, or acrylic paints.
Plus, learn some fun facts about the Toy Story characters as you learn to draw them. Brief character descriptions and art instruction from professional Disney•Pixar animators round out this exciting artistic adventure.

- Level Up! Readers #1 (English-Spanish)(Disney/Pixar Toy Story 4)(Level Up! Readers)(Disney Bilingual)
Many of these new books are Random House publications, which weren’t included in the earlier list of releases. (The Random House books did not provide any captions or summaries; this was their omission, not mine.) Titles I was expecting to see, such as the junior novelization and early readers, now have publication dates of May 7 like the rest. I do like seeing more characters besides Woody and Buzz mentioned in the new descriptions here, such as Jessie and Bo Peep. The sticker book also references “cool vehicles” – which could possibly hearken back to the hint of a RV road trip from D23.
One title from my previous post, then called “Inspirational Toy Box,” has since been changed to Toy Story 4 Toy Box: Words to Play By. The book’s description is the same as before: Follow fan-favorite Toy Story characters in this unique format that includes inspirational and hilarious words of wisdom from beloved Toy Story characters old and new!
The question still stands… who will be able to resist these books before Toy Story 4 hits theaters, to stay spoiler-free? I still don’t know if I’ll be able to resist them myself!
