Instead of trying to explain why I like this book, I decided to write down what my little boy said when we first read this book: "Wow", "Beautiful", "Delicious", "Awesome", "This is wonderful." If you still want more information on why I bought this book, I could tell you how we've read this story almost every day, and usually more than once a day; how I had to hide it to write this review; how Bob Staake is my new favorite author/illustrator for the preschool set; how delectably brilliant the illustrations are; and how the quirky writing borders on ridiculous without crossing over. Or I could just let Thomas sum it up: "I love it!"
Awesome story. A great way to share the value of being unique and how we should all take care to judge based on quality and character as opposed to appearance.
