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.
