Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter loves this book, particularly the pages in the back where she can give the creatures names and then add her own events to the story.
Adult Reader Reaction: We were surprised. We thought this might be a little bit stilted, but it is fun to read ... and to listen to our daughter's tales. We also like the fact that many of her Level 1 sight words comprise the story, making it easy to practice reading.
