Read from June 30 to July 12, 2014 — I own a copy

What a great book! I normally don't find much enjoyment in kids books but this was really fun. The story itself is reasonably interesting, my almost-four-year-old really liked the whole thing, but I was especially impressed with all the clever wordplay and subtle truths about life that will go over many kids' heads but are waiting to be discovered as they grow up and understand more.

Definitely a book I will be reading to my kids again, and regularly.
