I discovered the wonderful Mo Willens when I was struggling to get my own daughter to take to reading - she'd got behind due to hearing problems and it had put her right off. His books worked the magic that she needed to turn her instantly into a bookworm. Simple, funny, with endearing characters whose complexity belies the clever simplicity of the appealing drawings, these are books that both children and adults will never tire of. This is a particularly cute one and fit for my purpose, because it is all about making reading fun. I've recommended it ever since I came across it to any friends whose children are reluctant readers. Works like a charm!
