The text was rather long, but engaging. It managed to keep his attention all the way through, although that might have been because I sounded like I was starring in a bad spaghetti western when I read it. Usually, books written in dialect are right up there with children's stories written in a forced rhyme on my list of things I don't like to read out loud, but Dennis Shealy did a pretty good job keeping the dialect light and funny. The artwork, of course, was perfect. It was perfectly beautiful. It was perfectly colorful. It was perfectly elegant. And it was perfectly humorous. And it was (almost) enough to forgive this book for recalling my high school drama days.
This is a wonderful little gem. Beautiful, bold illustrations and great, expressive writing. My son comes back to this book time after time. As a parent, it's a fun one to read aloud.
This book was absolutely worth the purchase. It was fun to read and had me in stitches while reading to the grandson.Very fun story line and a must for young pre-schoolers. Great book. MIMI58MS
