not for everyone!
on 21 February 2011
I bought this largely because of the rave reviews. I thought if there are so many 5star reviews and no low ones, well it must be fantastic!! But my daughter was very disinterested. She is a bright 4 year old with a vivid imagination, and we got about halfway through the book and she just walked away. i had seen that she was finding it rather trying!! and she has expressed absolutely no interest in going back to it. Normally she loves books, but i think she was disappointed by the fact that there are no words. She didn't want an interactive play experience- she wanted a story to lose herself in, probably with jokes and a certain amount of lyricism. I think she was put off by all the questions it seemed to me a little like interrogation...
Luckily we were able to give this book to someone else who hopefully will enjoy it more - and my daughter got Charlie and Lola instead. Much better!
