We read this book so many times my kids can literally recite the whole thing from memory just by looking at the pages. The storyline is cute- I personally love this book. However, the copy I received was paperback and flimsy. It was already worn out before the mail carrier folded it in half and stuffed it in my mailbox. So it is raggedy and bent in half. Yikes. Story is still good, worth reading- just be sure you don't order a paperback copy.
