Why I like this Book: I've always loved David Wiesner, but somehow this one flew under the radar for me. When I discovered this at the library I was delighted. It is uproariously comical and unusual. My 4 year-old son Samuel loves it too. Usually he doesn't ask me to read books spontaneously in the middle of the day, but he asked me to do so with this book multiple times. It's the perfect book for both kids and adults.
