Silly and absurd, it's a wonderful read for fans of I Want My Hat Back. Klassen is as eventful as ever in his illustrations surprise as Barnett's nonchalant story unfolds to its near-pointless ending. Absolutely fun to read to kids.

A nice concept book for taking big facts and trying to make them concrete. While still erring on the side of abstract for young children, older kids and adults alike will find some of the comparisons fascinating.

“If we are developing students to be creative, flexible, independent learners, then we cannot scrub away opportunities for mistakes to be made and corrections to be learned. Often times we learn more from what did not go well and we have learned to fix.”
