Makes you hungry..lol Jun 5, 2008
I love the imagination that this book sparks. I can read it over and over again. My daughter loves the illustrations and she laughs every time I read it at the silliness of it all. Awesome book.
Really good story May 30, 2008
I bought this book, like so many others, for my nephews, who are almost 2 and 4. The pictures in the book were great but not quite as vibrant and colorful as those in some of their other books. I found the story to be quite good, but it was pretty wordy (which can be good if you're reading it to try to make somebody sleepy). So, overall, as an adult, I really liked this book, but I feel like the younger kids prefer books more like the ones they're used to--few words and colorful pictures. I'm hoping, though, that even if they don't fully appreciate it now, maybe they'll grow into it. I would definitely buy it again.
One of my all time favorites! Apr 15, 2008
I loved this book as a kid and now own it and read it to my kids. I love everything about it (the pictures and the story).
Seriously ? Five Stars ? Mar 8, 2008
I can't believe this book has 5 stars. . I'm so confused. I bought this book for my kids for Christmas after reading the rave reviews...and I can't express how completely disappointed I am. Rather than being "whimsical" the book was more "disturbing" with a touch of "nauseating". After I read this book to my six year old she offered to take it to her school and donate it to the school library. . . that oughta tell you something.
Great Book! Mar 6, 2008
This is an all around great book! We have loved reading this book over and over. It brings a smile to your face and lifts you up! As authors ourselves, it is inspirational to see books written by other authors. Darla, Sydney and Jimmy Batchler
