First book ever read by our 5-year-old by himself. Easy enough words for an early reader and very funny, too. He picked it up himself at a book fair and started reading it right there and then, captivated by the dialogue in the speech bubbles. Every evening before bed he'd be super excited about carrying on where he'd left the night before. In fact, he's enjoyed it so much we've now got a second book by the same author.
