Young Reader Reaction: S/He liked pointing to the things that Wibbly did. We had several requests for the book, but it dropped in interest after about a week.

Adult Reader Reaction: The illustrations are cute, but you need to 'round out' the narrative to make this a book worth picking up. It's easy to create the rhymes toddlers like…it just takes some quick thinking.

Pros: It's a short book with activities toddlers can relate to.

Cons: There is no story, just declarations of things Wibbly can do.

Borrow or Buy: Skip. Don't even borrow it.
