Format: Hardcover
Perhaps it is because I live in Japan, where there is a cult of positivity and shmalz, that I was so shocked, and my son gobsmacked by the ending. He looked at me with wide-eyed disbelief, and since reading it (well it was only yesterday) he has been keen to please. You will see why when you read the ending. The ending is perhaps morally sound, but be warned, it is not happy! I think this book is for children of four years old and above. My son is nearly three.

I think that, as a child, this book would have terrified me, but my kids seem to love it! Perhaps because they know what wonderfully well-mannered children they are...

It's a cautionary tale, in the mould of Hillaire Belloc, but much more sparing with the words. Billy is a very spoilt child who is shown a series of wonderful things, such as the world's curliest trumpet, and the steamiest train. Billy's only response to all of these things is "whatever". In the end Billy's Dad shows him the world's hungriest tiger. After the tiger eats him, he shouts to his Dad that he is still there in the tiger. Dad's reponse as he walks away? "Whatever".

This book is wonderfully illustrated - they are bright and simple pictures, which remind me a little of the iconic Mr Benn.

This book is a fantastic read. Its humour appeals to the very young right through to adult level. As a teacher librarian I have used this as a tool to teach children about character, plot and story development. The simplicity of the text is a testament to the writing skills of William Bee.

I was surprised to see that this is a library book with property of merthyr tydfil public libraries stamped all over it. No mention of this was made in the product description.
