My preschooler total enjoys me reading this book to her, but I don't know why. She doesn't get the references to Dragnet, or why it is funny for the hero to disdain the hygiene of the bad-guy, named Dirty Rat. I think even the nursery rhyme references, both subtle and blatant, are going over her head.

I, on the other hand, find the book hilarious. Every time I read it I notice new, funny references. Part of the enjoyment is the mixture of subtle and blatant references to so many things. I have a blast using different voices for the various characters. Hmmm, maybe that is why my daughter likes it.
