I'm not sure that this woman read the same book as we did. We found it to be delightful. We could never get through it without laughing so hard that we had tears streaming down our faces. I guess that my children knew better than to act like Spinky (maybe use him as an example of how not to act). It soon became one of our favorites. Have you never read for shear entertainment?!?

We threw this book right out. William Steig is very disappointing this time around. Spinky is a spoilt, undisciplined, overly-sensitive brat. His parents are extremely indulgent and coddle him endlessly. They permit and encourage this sort of tantrum-ish behavior. This book is so pop-psych that it's sickening. Instead of disciplining him and/or simply telling him to get over it, they spoil him endlessly. The story really is quite stupid. My children were not impressed either. This book encourages this sort of self-centred nonsense that has become all too common in this day and age. I mean, come on, what responsible parent is going to allow their young child to sleep outdoors in the pouring rain overnight? Don't get this one. Even though we will not be using our copy, I don't even plan to give it to anyone, or to recycle it. It's going straight in the trash. His other books are better. Particularly, Brave Irene and Doctor De Soto.
