it was amazing

I first read this book when I was too young to catch all of the wordplay that Juster used throughout the book. I think my experience with it, though, is what I would recommend to everyone. I read this aloud to my mother and she helped me with pronouncing words I'd never seen before, as well as talking through their meanings. We would talk about what I thought the word meant looking at the context, which is a valuable skill to develop as a young reader.

This is a must-read for anyone who likes word-play, likes a challenge to their vocabulary, or who are raising young readers.
