bookshelves: with-holden
Recommended for: little spoiled brats that have everything except a grasp of logical, natural consequences
Read in November, 2008, read count: 20

What kind of message was Eric Carle sending here? The "Papa" in this story is a hopeless push-over -- the way that little girl bosses him around! Going for whimsy and fantasy is one thing but this little brat has done nothing to earn the heroic feat that her father performs. And then she acts all surprised when the waning moon disappears? She looked old enough to have put together the pieces of lunar dynamics on her own.

I will say this though: the way the pages fold out is extra creative. For that: ★★★★★

Chris This put a nice, big smile on my face.

Thanks for the warning; should I ever start breeding I'll make sure to keep this out of the house, lest I desire raising lunar-phase ig'nant whelps.
