Both my boys (ages 4 & 8) thought this was a silly book. Probably because they are boys and this book involves spitting! They thought it was funny to see so many different people join in on the fun, including a police man!
When the mayor shows up and booms "Enough! Just look around! What have you DONE to our poor town?" it looks like everyone will be in trouble. Everyone slumps their shoulders and puts their heads down but just then the baker walks by with his cart full of pies. The mayor grabbed a whipped-cream pie and let it fly which then started a pie fit instead of spitting more watermelon seeds.
