Tiresome. You can really sense the attempt to reuse words.

This was my favorite book as a child. Unfortunately, this book has been out of print for a long time.

This was my favorite book as a toddler. I made everyone in my family read it to me a million times. I can still remember most of the lines such as "Children! said Mrs. Mouse". I think it does a genuine portrayal of sibling rivalry and the special relationship kids have with their grandparents. Years ago, I saw a copy of it on Ebay and had to buy it. My original was missing a cover and a few pages like a well loved doll.

An oldy but a goody. There is a cute and unexpected adventure. Plenty of word repetition for new readers and young listeners.

I hated this book when I was growing up because my mom always related it to me! Ha - I love it now that I can look back on it. . .
