I got a copy of this book on my phone and we really enjoyed it. Well written, cute little story about a cactus living on a roof. I recommended it to my friend who has a little girl. He told me his daughter enjoyed reading it together and, as usual, she loved the pictures. There is going be a sequel to this story. I will defiantly download it - it's great entertainment for the kids in the car and when we go out with friends for dinner.
