I used to do volunteer work with little kids all the time & one of my favorite parts was helping to teach the littlies how to read. So every now & then I like to take a break from the YA/Adult books & review a children's book. Unfortunately this one wasn't the best. As children's books go this one just seemed kind of bland to me. I kept waiting for that moment when I'd see that extra something, but for me it just didn't happen. I wasn't a huge fan of the illustrations on this one either. To be completely honest the drawings on the back kind of gave me the creeps.
In all, I thought this one was just alright.
