I bought this book based on rave reviews and the fact that everyone seems to love it. My husband and I both found it almost painful to read and it left our kids confused and completely unexcited. It reminds me of a similar kids book series that people seem to like that fell flat for us - elephant and piggy. So if you don’t like those books, you probably won’t like this one either. No point, boring prose, just generally strange and not very fun. Disappointed in a book with such good ratings.
