Its cute, and short. But its a story we can probably all relate to who have ever had a farm or lived out in a rural community.

I loaned it to my 12 year old son when I was done reading it. He said it sounded like something he would do too. We both really enjoyed this short story.

This should not be considered a book with only 9 pages but it was simple & cute. Should provide at least a chuckle to most. Certainly wont take too much of your time to check it out.

Worth reading. Especially for those of us who grew up using the little house that was so cold in the winter.

This is only 5 pages, I laughed out loud so much that my husband asked what I was laughing about. I read it to him. We both were laughing! For a good laugh, this book is free for Bsrnes and Noble.
