I love reading this book to my 3 year old son. In fact, it's my favourite of all of his bedtime stories. It's a bit quirky, and there are lots of opportunities for silly voices. It makes us both giggle every time we read it. I can't say enough good things about it. The illustrations are beautiful, and the story has a lovely pace and rythmn. I have recommended this book to all of the other parents of small children that I know.
