This is a sick and twisted book. It teaches kids that it's okay to marry your father, pet or even a flower. It's audience: 4-8 year olds. Sick sick mind!!!!!!!

Well you can tell I have a daughter with this choice. Have to say I wasn¿t too sure about this one when it was picked out and its probably not recommended if you want your daughter to actually understand marriage as it will definately give them funny ideas about who and what you can marry (which i think from this book is basically anything: people, animals and much much more.)However, the book is actually hilarious. It is written in the way a toddler would talk, in the same sort of way that Lauren Child does so well in her Charlie & Lola books so we essentially have a small girl telling us about how to find a husband and how to get married with some quite bizarre ideas being put forward.Seriously funny though it will no doubt raise some interesting questions for parents!Dad¿s Rating 8/10Daughters Rating: A good book that tells you everything about marrying people!

This is the sort-of cute follow-up to "How to be a Baby." The characters aren't any less cute; the language reminds me a lot of the tone in Lauren Child's "Charlie and Lola" books. I guess I just didn't have pretend weddings as a child and that's why the central conceit of this picture book isn't resonating with me! I also think it might confuse children who have genuine questions about marriage and weddings, but maybe not!

Parents wake up! How many of you tell ur toddler it is Ok to marry your father, an animal, a stone? I don't know anyone who would tell this to a child except maybe to cover up incest. I can't believe the naivete of people

This is a really cute story of a little girl's dream of getting married. I think every little girl has that dream of getting married someday. This story has wonderufl humor in it that can be enjoyable for both adults and children. For children it shows them how to use their imagination for adults it is a good laugh about how we saw weddings to be when we were children.

This book is adorable. I am a wedding planner and will be giving this book as a gift to my new clients. Very humorous and written from a kids "point of view." Certainly, not to be taken seriously as the first reviewer indicates. I am stunned anyone would actually write a review like that about a kids book. Obviously, you can't marry a flower. Actually, my daughters held a mock wedding and my 4 year old married a gorilla. I highly recommend this book!

I had to post like the previous person before me and agree with her. It is a funny book for CHILDREN! Also, many little girls talk about how they want to marry their daddy. It is super cute and I actually intend to send this to a girlfriend, for a little laugh and a little pick me up.

I HAD to respond to this book and 100% contradict the previous review. This book is a delight! I read it to my Kindergarten class and we ALL enjoyed it. It's CHILDREN'S book meant to be enjoyed by CHILDREN... not adults who take everything literally. There is nothing "sick" about it. Your kids (especially little girls) will love it!
