Borrow. This is a book you'll read several times, then your reader will be ready to move on.
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).
Bright illustrations engage young listeners as you read this fun story.
There are a few hiccups in the rhyming cadence, but nothing that will stick out to a young listener.
