This book is a stone cold classic that allows for expressive storytelling and an interactive reading experience. It . . . may not be the best bedtime book. Heh. But it is definitely engaging and still remains a unique and immersive approach to children's books.

Such a great, funny and surprising story for anyone to read, especially adorable to see the reaction of new readers that are finally comprehending what they read. I recall when I was young, reading this book for the first time and being surprised. I bought for a 2nd grader recently and she had such a shocked, darling response reading it. Great book for all ages, especially the first time it is read!@@@@A MUST HAVE!
