    Children will love this story

    Feiffer's illustrations dominate The Daddy Mountain in which charcoal sketches of Daddy are juxtaposed with a watercolor image of a little girl with bright red hair, who attempts to ascend the daunting height of her father's body. The climb begins at his loafered feet after the child announces,'it's very high.' Slowly she makes her way up a very patient Dad's leg and torso precariously clinging bravely, until triumphantly reaching the summit. There is a fold over, vertical page in full color displaying a daughter perched upon Dad's head. Both father and child have matching ear to ear grins. The fold over page may not last long in libraries so plan on using plenty of mending tape because this book will circulate in both elementary school libraries and public libraries. It is a great choice for storytime. The illustrations alone are worth the price.

    A grown-up book masquerading as a children's book

    Jules Feiffer is fun - for adults. And as he's done in almost all of his books for children, Feiffer has dished out yet another children-patronizing tale that is directed at parents and children's books collectors. Unfortunately, as I've experienced with most of his books this far, my first and second graders found this book 'boring', and 'and then what happens' at the end of the book. Perhaps Feiffer's marketing team should change their target audience to those trying to recapture their childhood instead of talking down to our kids who are actually experiencing childhood.
