I don't like this book, but my 3-yr-old son does.
on 15 April 2014
I think the pictures are very sweet, and the idea is nice, but I just don't find a rhythm in the words and some phrases just grate with me. I never read "race you to the station for a jolly good smash up", for instance, and I change "the mother" to "the mummy", it just seems a little less formal and a little warmer that way. I just don't enjoy reading this book. But to be fair, my son loves it. He snuggles down and listens quietly and calmly, which is what you want from a bed time story I guess!
