it was ok

This book is a string of tiresome one-liners between two friends who live in each independent moment with no thought of what comes before or after. Phrases taken out of context twist the conversation far away from the original trajectory, and the conclusion leads back to the beginning.

The humor is pleasant, but the puns make the book a more challenging read than its plot would suggest. Young readers could be drawn in by its mild storyline, but they might not have the needed grasp of word-play, spelling, and homophones in order to understand the interaction between the two ponderously flighty characters.
