did not like it

This book drives me nuts! The writing is appalling! The Claybourne-Willmets, seriously?! It's not even funny, it's just ridiculous. I have read this book to my kids about a thousand times and I hate it as much now as I did the first time I read it. I especially hate the opening lines about how we can't predict what a baby will grow up to become because it makes no sense as it starts talking about a name not being suited to someone. It's just awful, clunky writing and general weirdness. Why on earth do we need to hear about the dog licking out the vet's contact lens? Why do they give the dog cheese? It's just weird. I really wish my kids had never been given this book. They like it, probably because of the illustrations. I will never like it.
