I am yet to be disappointed by a Julia Donaldson book! Her books are fun for kids and adults. She is by far my favorite children's author!

A whole library in a single book Jan. 19 2006
By 27Quincy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I don't think there's a better writer of children's books out there today than Julia Donaldson. Her books are perfect for reading aloud to a toddler: just the right length to keep the attention of reader and listener, great rhymes, and clever stories. This new book is no exception, and is worthy of a spot on your child's bookshelf alongside "The Gruffalo" and "The Snail & The Whale." This book is the literary equivalent of holding up a mirror while you're looking in a mirror: there are layers of stories within stories. Little Charlie Cook likes a particular book, the characters in his book like another book, the characters in that book like another book, etc., so that every page (whimsically numbered in a non-consecutive fashion) basically takes you into another book. The overall effect is like browsing through a whole children's library in a single book: you get a pirate story, an animal story, a knight/dragon story, an alien story, etc. I won't give away the ending, but suffice it to say it's clever like all of Julia Donaldson's endings. Bottom line: this book should appeal mightily to all the little budding bookworms out there, and to their big bookworm parents.

Great book for Ages 4-6 Oct. 1 2007
By M Manning - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'm a huge fan of this author/illustrator team, and this book is another great one. The concept is very clever and engaging. I enjoy reading it almost as much as my daughter loves hearing it.

Really enjoyed this book within books Feb. 18 2013
By Melissa T. H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My son (3 and 1/2 yrs old) enjoyed this story as it kept changing- the book within a book was a complicated idea that was fun and engaging, so it was a nice learning tool to teach him about different ideas.
While it's not his absolute favorite of Julia Donaldson's stories, I do recommend it and think it will grow with him longer than some of the other kids books out there.

There are better Julia Donaldson books out there. Aug. 11 2014
By JohnoGG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not as good as the other Julia Donaldson books, in my opinion. It didn't help that the book was printed on really cheap feeling stock and felt more like a brochure than a book. The actual storyline is clever but perhaps overly clever for a kid and gets a bit wrapped up in itself. I wouldn't rate this in the same class as The Gruffalo, Highway Rat or What The Ladybird Heard.
