did not like it
bookshelves: picture-books

When I read this book by the author of the Corduroy books, I am amazed at the difference in the writing styles that we see in early picture books like this (pre 1980) compared to the ones of today. I can't say the kids didn't like this story, but they certainly found it weird. I helped them connect to the book by stopping and modernizing some of the text for them, but I would say that we were all left with the thought, "What?" when we finished this book. Odd. Simply odd. But then again, I find the Corduroy books odd too...just a likable character, I suppose. Maybe that's all you need to carry a book?
