This book is a wonderful little bit of Tom Robbins. It is exactly as the cover implies - A Children's Book for Grownups/ A Grownup's Book for Children. It is a comical tale of a little girl, who wonders why adults like beer so much. She embarks upon a journey with the Beer Fairy to learn all about it - including why too much is a bad thing. In the tradition of a good fairy tale - it has a happy ending! As usual, Mr. Robbins has a way of being profound in a humorous manner. This is a child's length book, and can easily be enjoyed, start to finish, in a day.

A quick and fun read for anyone who enjoys precocious children or beer. Filled with fun "facts" that will send you scurrying to Wikipedia to see if by chance they are true, Tom Robbins' descriptions are always unique. "Do you know about drizzle, that thin, soft rain that could be mistaken for a mean case of witch measles? Seattle is the world headquarters of drizzle, and in autumn it leaves a damp gray rash on everything, as though the city were a baby that had been left too long in a wet diaper and then rolled in newspaper." How does he think of this stuff? Robbins' books always have passages that make me laugh out loud.

Educational, fun, inspirational, and a great way to bond with children over what used to be a white or pink elephant nightmare of a subject. Hooray for Tom Robbins and THANK YOU for writing this book. Bottoms up!
