Highly recommend! Wonderful colored pictures for the children to enjoy & cute story!
Delivery was okay, condition of the book less so. Satisfactory in the sense that we got the book - the condition was less than desirable. The book itself is great - it treats each fo the excesses of unhappy children at bedtime as an ostensibly out-to-lunch reaction, and the kids are encourage by the story flow to agree how crazy the dinosaur reaction is. I especially like the parts where Mom is accorded much more respect than Dad at bedtime.
