This is one of those books I never owned but never forgot. And long after I learned to read, I still wanted my dad to read it to me. I remember distinctly it had a few "big words" I had to ask him about. (Piper's father offers to build bookshelves when he discovers his son is keeping comic books in the bathroom--the elder Mr. Paw refers to this as "literature," a word with which I was unfamiliar.) This is what makes it a great book to share with children--it's one of those rare creations that is thoroughly enjoyable on both kid and grown-up levels. The aforementioned example gave my dad an opportunity to teach me a new word, and it sparked a discussion as to what actually constitutes literature. It also gave me an introduction to sarcasm. I'm sorry it's out of print, but there are plenty of used editions available. So order a dog-eared copy and love it to death a little more!
This book is rated from 4 to 8 years old. If you're an adult, read on. It's a hoot no matter how old you are.
I'm glad it was re-released. It's a classic: recommended for adults as well as children.

Good text in light sense and terrific illustrations. B & W leaves room for readers to make color of their choice. Ends well.

Gave this away after one reading. I don't understand the point, it introduces retribution and witholding and most kids figure that out on their own without having it modeled for... Read morePublished on January 1, 2014 by tspia
