This is the kind of book that could really get a kid thinking. I'm actually quite surprised my youngest brought it home from school. The art isn't really to my taste, but I can see it entertaining some kids. It reminds me of some of the more experimental and artistic animation from the 70s where everything kind of flows into everything else.
My boyfriend asked me to be his girlfriend with this book, so it's very special to me. I love the way its written and illustrated.
