Good Book! This is the second book I read and still love it!

Opus is listening to the same (boring) story he's heard zillions of times before when he departs from the text, in quite a spectacular way - flying through the milky way, going diving with Abe Lincoln's statue, nearly crashing into an airplane...!It does go on and on for a while. Not for kiddos with short attention spans.

kids will have to have great imaginations and not short attention spans, Opus is the main character, he is having to listen to the same boring book that he has heard many times before. He zones out and goes on crazy adventures in his mind. He flies through the milky way for example.Great for third grade and up!goodnightopus.com

Both charming and mesmerizing, Berkeley Breathed has created an endearing bedtime story for his greatest creation, Opus. Even at 30+ years old, I can still sit down on any given night, and take 10 minutes out of my evening to be swept away to to the marvelous Milky Way and remind myself that sometimes, it is perfectly normal and quite a bit of fun to depart from the text, even if just for awhile.

I love this book! It has been my favorite ever since I was a little girl. I love it so much I have actually memorized it front to back! I can't wait to read this to my future children.

This has become one of my daughter's favorite stories when she was small (now she's 15). We would read this over and over, and enjoyed it every time. The illustrations are just as fun as the story. I can't wait to share this book with my two year old niece!

This is a wonderful book which is as fun to read as it is to look at. The illustrations are fantastic, with lots of details that require a second, third or even fourth look to see. The story is told in a smooth rhyming scheme, and it uses grammar and words that do not 'talk down' to kids. Read it - you'll love it!
