This was one of my children's favorite books. My son is now a kindergarten teacher and I send him books for his classroom since he teaches at an inner city school with limited funding. It is now a favorite of his students. Marvelous pictures, sweet fun story. I look forward to reading it to my grandchildren someday.

My favorite children's book ever. Fabulous humorous drawings are great for kids and adults reading aloud. Kellog is a master illustrator/entertainer and Mahey is a fab story teller!

This picture book delights all of my students, young and older. In addition to a cute, imaginative story, the language is rich and varied and is a great teaching tool for vocabulary and word usage. I am a speech/language pathologist and am always looking for books like this that I can use in my practice.
