My three-year-old son ADORES this book and when we got it wanted to read it again and again and again “because this one’s a GOOD one!” I personally don’t love it, but I’m a big proponent of any book that gets kids excited about reading stories!

I make books for kids and people who used to be kids. My favorite activity is drawing (surprise!), my favorite food is chocolate, and my favorite sport is ping-pong. When I’m not making books, I like to get other peoples’ kids all wound up, then send them home to their parents.
