Readerly Mom
Bay Area mother of two, world traveler, book lover, picky reader

4.0 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are absolutely darling, as is always the case with books in this series, but on the whole, I thought the book was nothing special. It’s not one my kids ask to read often, and it’s not one I’m likely to suggest either.
