This is a lovely book for introducing young children to Edgar Allan Poe without all the scary details. Amusing play of words, wonderful illustrations. I gave it to an adult Poe fan who loved it.
Very cute, simple story about honesty and mischief between siblings! I read this to the children at church and the adults loved it at least as much as the kids!
