You will notice that many of the one-star reviews are from adults who determined that the book was stupid without field-testing it on an actual kid. Big mistake.
A lot of the other one-star reviews are from people who object to speaking of a hippo named “Boo Boo Butt.” Tough crowd...
Definitely a great purchase and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys hearing their kid(s) laugh.

By the end of the second reading my son declared it "the funniest book ever" and he has a lot of books and has read and been read to a lot.
Buy it, you won't regret it and by the end you too will probably be crying with laughter.
My child is aged 7 years.
Got it for my 6.5 year old and he literally wet himself laughing. I appreciate this may not be the ideal outcome most people want but to me this fact alone says buy it. I have read it to him three times already since he opened it 10 minutes ago, and he is now reading it to himself :-) One happy boy.
