    Good, not great

    Michael Wenberg needs to learn the language of children. "Okey dokey" is probably not in the vocabulary of most kids today. The story idea is good, but somewhat difficult for young children to follow.The author shows promise and should continue writing. The description of Tubby on page 7 is good.
