Wages Creek is a little out of the ordinary. It's not just a book, but also a cassette; and unlike others, it is a combination of the author reading (he has a GREAT voice!) and music that he apparently composed. It's fun and silly and you will giggle. Littler children can listen to the cassette; older ones can read the book; and even adults might just find some sly humor here that will go right past the kids. It's a real kick and not something you find every day. No Disney marketing, just a cute, clever story well done, almost a throwback to a different--and perhaps better--time. Highly recommended.
