This book is a perfect companion for our son. We are moving our family to a new city, and this book is all about unexpected changes and adventures - overcoming things that are big, and some things that seem bigger than they really are... and what lies on the other side of each journey - more journeys! It's funny and creative.

We got this at the library and my son has been more attached to this book than any we have checked out. I highly recommend it.

My kids (5 and 7) cannot get enough of this book. You never know where the next page (or turn of events) will take you, and their adventures (hilarious pictures with upside down comments from the hamsters) are all surprising. It is a joy for both kids and adults - the book is both funny and wise!

My 3 years old loves this book and has practically memorized it. I think the "comic book" style of the book really appeals to my son. We're read it a 100 times and still love it - well done!
