You've just described one of the best, most original, most beautifully drawn children's picture books of all time as 'rather rubbish'. I find it revealing that you were 'advised' to get it (ie, that you weren't already familiar with it from your own childhood.). The only criticism I can think of that would hold any weight at all would be 'it's a bit scary for very young children'. But 'Not Great'/'Rather Rubbish' is just poor judgment.

A bit aggressive, after all art is subjective and everyone is allowed an opinion. Rather unkind to start picking on why she hadn't heard of it from her childhood as if bringing class into it.

Btw haven't yet read it was just interested what the low scorers said.

Yep it was a bit aggressive. Unkind? No. Just honest. If you write poor reviews that knowingly go against the grain you have to accept that you might get heckled a bit (but I would defend her right to go against the grain absolutely). Go read the book, and then you might understand my position... 'Rather rubbish' deserves to be heckled, believe me. And when I said it is revealing that she hadn't heard of it, I was insinuating that she perhaps wasn't read to much as a child (think about it, it does make sense). No mention of class - that was in your mind (and therefore it was your prejudice).

In your opinion its one of the best and most original beautifully drawn books. This is not my opinion which I am entitled to. Its not a picture book its a story book which I think requires the story to be interesting which in my opinion it is not.
I find your message aggressive and rude, Maybe you should read a book on how to be polite.

Would it be aggressive of me to point out that the impact of your reply is completely stymied by the fact that you seem unable to punctuate or use capital letters properly? Would it not have been a good idea, in crafting a response to the suggestion that you might be a bit limited, to have made sure that you didn't make any basic errors? Of course, you might argue that the sentiment of your reply was more important than its accuracy (notice, by the way, how I use "its" there) but, to this reader, your message confirms rather than challenges the things you've been accused of.
By the way, in my opinion the book is absolutely wonderful.
