Parent Reaction:

The story was different than what I expected based on the title, but it is very cute and I liked it. The illustrations are unique, with bright colors and comic-style flair. The story is well presented, allowing readers to listen and look at the pictures without feeling left behind (listener) or rushed (reader).

Pros:

Bright illustrations engage young listeners as you read this fun story.

Cons:

There are a few hiccups in the rhyming cadence, but nothing that will stick out to a young listener.
