This was a very cute book and even though I’m not a child I throughly enjoyed it. I had a fantastic time reading this to my niece and looking at the pictures together! On the topic of the pictures I thought they were very well done, and reason enough alone to pick this book out! The adventure was interesting and compelling . Given the chance I would read this again, it’s a nice way to keep a child interested and even yourself if you’re looking for a cute book to read that will make you feel like a child again, so I would pick this book up if you come across it! Enjoy!
