Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Jason Eaton has crafted a children's book with a hilarious, playful voice that encourages young readers and engages older ones. Filled with creative and surprising wordplay and subtle sophistication, the story is original yet calls upon the best traditions of children's literature. Most importantly, it's a whole, whole lot of fun with a message about the nature of lies that always holds true whether you're 8 or 80. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.
This is the most entertaining and imaginative book, not only for children but for parents and grandparents to read to their children. The underlying current teaches values without preaching. It should be required reading for all politicans and CEO's or corporate America.
