I wanted to love this book, but I didn't. It is wonderfully illustrated and a cute read but it didn't blow me away. I knew it would not be like the original story. However much of the humor was far above my 3.5 year olds head. We love Mo Willems. This just didn't seem like his best work. There we so many twists and "inside" jokes it felt like Mo as trying too hard. It says age 3 and older but I think this might be a better enjoyed by an older child.
