Half expecting it to be more like "Who's afraid of the Big Bad Book?" (which is BRILLIANT), I didn't find it as exciting or funny but more, well, weird. I mean, Lola (the main character) is a bit of a crazy-minded individual - but having said that, my 3 year old loves her. Obviously kindred spirits. Despite that, it enchants, delights and involves the reader (in this case, the listener). The illustrations make up for the odd storyline, so all-round it is a good book but perhaps only appreciated by the age-group on which it is aimed.
