This is a wonderful story. Simple and relatable. (So much so, in fact, that the reason I remembered to turn around and head for the bookstore was my daughter pretending to sneeze of her own accord.)
It's not long, so it makes a great bedtime read. It's beautifully illustrated. Adam Rex is a talent and a half, and brings nuance to every page. (I hope he's being well-compensated, because no offense to Mr. Gaiman, it's the illustrations that seal this as a five-star effort.)
Buy this book for your child. Or for yourself if you're just a Gaiman collector. (But Neil insists that you read it to a child . . . borrow one maybe. Generally parents of young children are happy to give them away for a chance to get out to a film, for instance. I know I am.)
I would say that the ideal ages for Chu's Day are 2-3 years. However, the intricate and engrossing illustrations will keep the attention of much older "kids." I continue to find new (and funny) things on every page.
A beautiful, fun book.
We took a trip recently, and this was one of the books that HAD to come in the carry-on. I'm pretty sure the people in the seats around of could have recited the book from memory by the time we landed.
I think that this book works to present the character ( like a promo) and the rest of the collection will have more of a story line.
I'm sure some of that is how we're reading it, but this book is an absolute joy to read to him... which is a good thing since my son demands it be read at least twice nightly.
