4.5 / 7.0

As a kid, I was simultaneously entranced and creeped out by this book. As an adult, I realized that I was a weird kid and there’s nothing remotely scary about this book. It’s a fun, silly story with fun, silly illustrations. It’s a solid addition to a bookshelf if you find it for pretty cheap or an enjoyable book to check out from the local library sometime.
