A book my 6 yr old as well as my twin 3 yr olds loved. A solid reading level 1 book, this cute story keeps all ages engaged with the bright colorful pictures and cute story. A great addition to any children's library.
Such a fun book for adults and kids. I loved laughing at all the quirks of perfect little Alistair--the studious, responsible boy with no time for pets or fun (except the kind that exercises his body AND mind). Emma and I will definitely be checking out all the other Alistair books from the library.

With a degree in fine arts, Marilyn Sadler assumed she would be an illustrator. But when early in her career she was presented with an opportunity to write, she seized it and quickly discovered that she had found her true love. No sad, sappy stories for her, however. She likes to make herself laugh, and with that her characters usually end up looking pretty silly for one reason or another.
