This is an excellent read, but I prefered the adventures of Edgar and Ellen(Written by Charles Ogden),because it created a clearer image and it had better discription.Also when a image is created in my head by this book it's so different to what I see in the book's illustrations...>.<

School somehow thinks this is the kinda book we find interesting. However, the average 8-year old will love this book (and so did I secretly)

It was a really good book to me, the funny stuff was like the story that Wilma gave the judges to get into the place.
