Old School Cool and Lots of Fun!
This book remindes me of old school books like, “A Fly Went By” (By Mike McClintock) and Tikki Tikki Tembo (By Arlene Mosel). Its fun and clever page to page. Its a morality tale wrapped up in a childrens book. My kids love this book just before bed time. The characters are cute and colorful. Great childrens book!
