I'm not sure I've ever heard another parent talk about this book but it became a favorite of ours before my children were even 2 years old. The illustrations are bright and full of energy. The story is rhythmic, amusing and is easy to follow even when you read it at a quick pace to keep the interest of a very young audience. The surprise ending is warm and tender.
I like the sense of adventure and wild imagination of the main character and I always love a book that incorporates a tender parenting moment, especially with a father. Even with all the action, this is a great book for bed time; I love a book that shows a child snuggled up in bed on their way to dreamland and that is exactly the note on which this story ends.
