So reading this book really takes be back of how I was so afraid of him when I was younger.

The illustrations in the boo

Good little book :)

It's a good rhyme. The basic message is to be good more than bad, which is good for kids to hear.

I received this as a giveaway and I can honestly say, I enjoyed it. Mind you, I also thought it a little scary. Art work is especially good.

Absolutely hilarious. An excellent book for kids of all ages, and the adults who read it to them. A funny Dahl-esque moral tale.
