Recommends it for: any kid or adult
Such a fun book, plus it shows that kids should learn carpentry. Anyone who would rate this any less than 5 stars is a person with no imagination and clearly shouldn't have kids.

I thought the name of this book was Boogie House, not Boogle! I read it to the kids today. Fairly cute. It's pretty fun with a lot of silliness. I love the hard work the boy put into all the houses and how cute and ramshackle it all became.
