Our little boy liked all the William Steig books. So did we. This Thanksgiving's magic moment: our boy (now 20) and I almost simultaneously expressed the desire to read Tiffky Doofke again. Its quirky haunting humor made us laugh so many times all those years ago. The boy, the dad, the mom, the uncle, everyone I know who ever read it - loved it.

William Steig is one of our favorites... he doesn't write "down" to kids and has imaginative stories for them to enjoy with adults.

This book is fun and funny with lots of nonsense words. It's always been my favorite and I've recently passed it on to my nieces.
