My 4 year old loved this book. The story is concise with simple sentences but highly entertaining, she memorized it and read it to me!

So weird and funny and just a little bit scary. I loved it!

This is a simple story with fun high-contrast art that could start a conversation about how we treat our friends, and why it is important with young children.
