It also does jump around a lot. That's an asset in an early reader - it means that the kids can stop reading when they get frustrated and pick it up again when they're ready. They don't have to worry about remembering plot points for more than two pages.
I like this book, my nieces like it (when they're willing to sit through it), that's what matters.
