There were moments of this book that I really enjoyed, and other moments that seemed problematic to me. I just read a comic that explains the yucky-to-read aspects of this book better than I can: http://bitchmagazine.org/post/a-comic...

I'd actually forgotten about this book until a recent chat with a friend.
I seem to recall being underwhelmed because it contained a lot of overlap with "No Touch Monkey!", which I'd read earlier and enjoyed more. Oh well.
