This story is about a wooden puppet who wanted to be a real boy so the fairy said dont lie and dont pick your nose and ill grant your wish well the boy continued to pick his node so the dad got a cricket to help him stop and the cricket helped and he stoped so the fairy turned him into a real boy and he never picked his nose again
This is not for everyone as it is a story about Pinocchio picking his nose, but it is wood boogers and it's pretty funny when he tells a lie and his nose grows so fast it takes off his arm or the time he pushes the cricket up his nose. I like the twist even though its sort of gross. Some kids were laughing so hard they were rolling on the ground. Or they were rolling on the ground in embarrassment.
My kids liked this book, but I didn't. It was hard to read without wanting to vomit--which would have been okay if it had had the same effect on my kids and deterred them from nose-picking, but they didn't seem to pick up on how gross it is.
