Seriously though, my 8 year old was howling with laughter and so was I! Though it reads like a Dr. Seuss I would not read it to a 4-6 year old..but 7 and up (depending on the individual child of course) this is fun. Parents should use their own discretion of course. Even if it's too much for a particular little one now, older children and the parents can snicker over it on their own.
The book takes us into the life of a young boy who is happily enjoying his life, eating Mom's pies, singing with mom, playing with his dog - all the things that young boys should be doing.

This is one of those books where it's best to say "know your kid" before buying it for them. Otherwise I'd say it's worth leaving on the coffee table for your friends to enjoy when they come over.
My husband and I love horror movies, and this being our first Father's day I wanted to get him something suited for it. The book is a well written spoof of a childrens book, the art work is clever and a bit gory. All what a fan of all things zombie needs.
