Here we all love it!
Reviewed in the United States on December 21, 2011
My girls (age 3 and 4) and I read the first book in this series together and they couldn't wait to begin the second! I was a little nervous that the second book wouldn't live up to the first, but it most definitely did! Tomie dePaola has such a wonderful way of describing things to his young (and old!) readers...and evidently he has plenty of fun and misadventures to share! The fact that my very young children so thoroughly enjoyed this book is a testament to the engaging writing style and the timeless, meaningful topics winding through the chapters. There are sweet illustrations on the pages that definitely grabbed the kids' attention (they wonder "Why is he doing that?" or "Is the mommy mad?" so I say, "Let's read and find out!") We all love this series. (Though I have to admit when a new book arrives, I sometimes secretly read ahead!)
