One of my favorite books as a kid, this is unfortunately often passed over for the more popular Silverstein titles. I read this to my little brother and the neighbor's kids tonight. It is a ton of fun to read out loud and definitely as funny as I remember it being. They just thought it was great, and the marshmallow part, of course, was a favorite. They just could not stop giggling. Honestly, as I read I found it very reminiscent of Roald Dahl. A fun little story with a very important moral to boot. Definitely worth the quick read.
