This book has a fresh, free, rhyming writing style, and a fresh, free, colourful drawing style that invite you into a world we don't usually inhabit. My son loved this book when he was 1. Now that he is nearly three, he still loves this book, and has always 'read' along with me. And it's a book that adults can read without tiring of -- you know what I mean: over and over and over and over ... This is definitely my favourite Thatcher Hurd book. I love the creativity that it expresses and engenders. If it weren't so hard to find, I would give this book to everyone I know.
