I thought this book was cute. I do think it is a little under my 9 year old's reading level, however it is entertaining so that would make up for it. ;)I love how Lemony uses larger words, and then takes the time to work in the definition of the word for the younger readers. At first, was not fond of it, as I felt like he was talking to me like I was stupid. And then I realized by him doing that, he was making the book personal and I FELT LIKE he was talking to (writing) specifically to ME. It made me appreciate it. LOL.I only gave it 3 stars because it is a childs book, I am a grown up. What would people say if I gave it 4. haha.
