Yes

I like rhyming but love when the rhyming is a consistent letter or sound or however you say it. There's something infinitely more fun about it for me to read out loud.

With all the glowing reviews, I had high expectations for this book. Granted it was only $.99, but I was unfortunately disappointed. The illustrations are small and the formatting of the book is so bad it seriously detracts from the story. It looks amateur. You can't pinch and zoom to see the illustrations better. I do think it flows & is a quick read. The writing is catchy, but none of my kids wanted to read it again anytime soon. There's really not too much of a storyline.

    I thought it was nice little book with a rythme, but the children don't seem to care for it. Probably just depends on an individuals personal taste, as all books do.

    Just OK

    My boys (age 3 and 6) really liked the book, but I was expecting something more. The rhyming text is nice, and there is plenty of fun language ("They served us desserts made with bum berry goo as we danced to the tune of the didgeridoo."), but I wasn't that impressed with the illustrations and the plot isn't that memorable. I think if the illustrations were better I would have liked the book a bit more.
