This is a cute little adventure but there's not much to it. Least favorite of the Dahl books I've read so far (which, to be fair, is only three).

I loved the premise, wasn't sure I'd stick with it after the first few chapters, but it won me over... mostly. There were a few things I wished had a little more wrap up at the end that would have bumped it up to a 4-star for me. Despite leaving me ...more
