Oddly illustrated, strangely written
on 21 May 2011
It may be because my son is only 2, but he really didn't get anything out of this book. It might be more suitable for older children, but I didn't think much of it myself.
I bought the book largely because of good reviews, but the illustrations are really quite strange. The story itself is written with a slightly different style of humour than other books, so it may or may not suit. Again, for us, it just didn't resonate. My son really enjoys books by Maurice Sendak and Julia Donaldson, but this is of a very different style.
