I wanted to like this, but it was too sing songy and too much rhyme for my taste.

I did love the one page on the steward with the picture revealing the Duke's decree "MT,MT,MMMT, IT" which I read "empty, empty, empty it!" I don't know whether the kids will catch it unless it is pointed out and I think the book is too long for a read aloud. However CCIRA had it on the read aloud month list, so perhaps it's just me.
