I have given the book four stars because I think it's worth some attention, and as half stars do not exist in this system. I will not say whether I'd have given it a half star more or less. The story is good, though not extraordinary. What is of interest is the author's unusual choice of meter--and her successful deployment of it, along with some clever rhymes and turns of phrase, on a few pages. In short, this book is not perfect, but it offers something that more consistent books often do not: some true verbal exploration. Fitch is referred to as "the Canadian Dr. Seuss" in one of the blurbs, which to me can only mean (as that adjective often does) she is one among the weaker cousins of the North. This description gets much wrong. The work is worth having and reading.
I would recommend this book for bright pre-schoolers and for all kids who demand more than picture books! It's a great read for child and for parent.
It's definitely worth the wait (out of print)!
