This is the best book I ever found in my role as a mother. It was absolutely the perfect book for my child. Even though he has "outgrown" it we are keeping this one for. ever.
Wanted to like it for quirky boy appeal, but just found it too odd in the end.
My four-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week.

I didn't hate this book, but when I finished reading it, I did say, "That was just weird".

Parts of this book are quite good. Some of the illustrations are dazzling. Some of the story is sweet. I didn't even really mind the weirdness, as long as it was weird for a purpose. But there was no purpose to the weirdness, it was just weird.
Sweet, suspenseful story with large,colorful illustrations.

themes: bugs, family, fathers, ingenuity, magic, sons, unemployment
