Great fun and very stimulating. When I read it with my son (4) after having forgotten about the book for a while it provoked a huge number of quite complicated questions about the nature of reality and imagination.
It is also quite long, a bit too long for toddlers.
I have read it several times to my 3 year old, and I don't think she really understands it. Maybe best for ages 4 and up?
