I downloaded this book through iPhone iBooks app for free. I was disappointed to see so many obvious mistakes in a published children's book. For example, using 'were' instead of 'we're' (were only rated so many hours before...) and 'than' instead of 'then' (and than tried to toss them up). Also the teacher was first introduced as Mr. Brightly, who 'didn't like his pupils to be late.' Then, in the classroom, he became a she and a lower case last name! (I think it's a sixty miss brightly). Then 'question' instead of 'questions' (and answering question in the classroom). And quite a few run on sentences, although that could just be the author's style (but he would not forget his best friend Roff that he would never do.) And that's just the first 21 out of 59 pages on my iPhone. As for the story itself, it was odd mostly with successful and unsuccessful attempts at being cute at times. No clear lesson for children.
