Format: Board book
This book absolutely cracked me up. I read through it once at the bookstore and I just completely cracked up. I couldn't stop laughing and then got the hiccups since it was so funny. It tells about a kid who goes in the movie theatre to see Pokemon: The First Movie and when he comes out, he 's a Pikachu. He then has to run away from all the kids that adore him. Some of his friends are Mew and Mewtwo. At the end, it has a little blurred up mirror and says that if you look like a Pokemon to go to bed and when you wake up in the morning that it'll have worn off. I would say that would make a great bedtime story for the young ones. An excellent book. 5 stars.

Format: Board book
This book is very strange in the loosest terms. But, it is also funny. A strange and funny book. The writing is actually very good when compared to other baby books (Say... "Pikachu's Day" for an example.), for the words and phrases used aren't dumbed down for the minds of infants. It's a great read-aloud book, too. I'm sure that my younger cousins will enjoy it.
The basic plot of the book, without ruining the entire thing is as such: A boy (unnamed and written in first person so that your child may envision his/herself as that boy) goes to the local theatre to see Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back. After the movie, he comes out and is instantly crowded by a mob of Pikachu fans. Unfortunatly, at this point, our young hero has no clue.
Realizing "Uh-oh! I turned into Pikachu!", the boy runs away from the hordes to hide. Encoutering two other children (both of which unnamed so that the children can envision themselves as the characters.) who have turned into Mew and Mewtwo, the three seek out a way to change back.
Your child watches the movie and goes berserk thinking that they've changed into a Pokémon and are afraid of what they're friends may think? No sweat. Just get a good night's sleep and by tomorrow, they'll be normal. Transformations only last about a day.
But if what the book says is true and that you change after watching and enjoying the Pokémon movie.... I wonder how many times I'VE transformed after watching my Japanese version on video for 12+ times..... o.O;

My nephew loves these books so much since he loves poke'mon as much as I do. So it would be a great present for him.

This book provides no information on the Gameboy and this book is for kids 5 and under, I'd say. For people who own the Pokemon Gameboy games, don't get this book.
