Funny and has great lessons!

Review by Avi

I liked this book because it taught a lot of lessons about helping people out. In addition to learning some important lessons from this book about how to be a good person, I also think it's really funny.

Review by SeaGirl

The book was ok, a little too easy for me. Maybe for 3rd graders?

Too babyish

Review by Sammi15

This was a good book but it was a little too babyish for me. I recommend this book for second and third graders.

Perfect for read-alouds to preschoolers

Review by tamarielpaints

I felt like it was too easy to be an independent reading-on-your-own book, but the stories are good and I'd recommend it for younger readers and read-alouds for ages 4-6.
