You will notice that many of the one-star reviews are from adults who determined that the book was stupid without field-testing it on an actual kid. Big mistake.
A lot of the other one-star reviews are from people who object to speaking of a hippo named “Boo Boo Butt.” Tough crowd...
Definitely a great purchase and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys hearing their kid(s) laugh.
Content: It is basically silly with some nonsense words and absurd statements. There is no question that this is a fun book. It is meant to make the kids laugh and enjoy reading. If it has any sort of moral teaching point it would be to avoid making assumptions. ( Sort of the proverbial, " don't judge a book by it's cover" message) I have heard some say they don't like the hippo being named BooBooButt. It's a personal thing. I thought it was funny. I think that is the only mildly controversial line in the book.
Font, length, vocabulary: I love the bold black letters. They are easy to read for beginning readers as well as old tired eyes. The length was perfect for young readers who might not have a long attention span. The wording choice was great. The author chose mostly simple words that are very easy to understand. There were a few isolated phrases that were trickier and great for building vocabulary skills. (ie. utterly preposterous).
Price, value: More than fair
Overall: I would definitely recommend this book to anyone with children.

By the end of the second reading my son declared it "the funniest book ever" and he has a lot of books and has read and been read to a lot.
Buy it, you won't regret it and by the end you too will probably be crying with laughter.
My child is aged 7 years.
Got it for my 6.5 year old and he literally wet himself laughing. I appreciate this may not be the ideal outcome most people want but to me this fact alone says buy it. I have read it to him three times already since he opened it 10 minutes ago, and he is now reading it to himself :-) One happy boy.
