Our 4-year-old loves this book and we now find him drawing pictures of the characters for his bedroom "gallery." It's a simple adventure story about a couple of animal friends, but the imagination sequences and subtle, witty, dialogue actually make it a fun read for me, too. This has become one of our go-to bedtime stories. Love love love.
And, the other great part of this book is that it supports a children's foundation that provides medical grants for kids across the U.S. Good story. Good cause.
I thought this was a very good childrens book. I can't wait to read it to my granddaughter today! I hope they make additional stories with these two characters. I also like the fact the proceeds go to the United Healthcare Childrens Fundation. This is an amazing foundation that I support every year.
This book has such a fun and imaginative story, first read this with my stepson shortly after a trip to the amusement park and he could not get enough. He is always happy to read this story, hoping for more adventures in this very cute series!
