Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Who could not love Clink with his toaster head and retro-radio torso? A lot of people, apparently, as he languishes in the store while super-clever creations wow the customers. The illustrations take the reader well beyond the text and give both adults and children plenty to chuckle about. You should get plenty of repeat readings out of this book.
