This is a fantastic book! My 3 year old boy absolutely loves it, as do I! It has wonderful rhymes and beautiful pictures, which both enhance an already charming story.show moreby Alison Kappler
This is a beautiful story much loved by my son. I bought a copy as a present for a friend and was disappointed to discover when it arrived that it is a US edition, even though this is not marked on the description. Look out for US spelling "gray" rather than "grey" and the snail "hitching a ride" rather than "hitching a lift".show moreby Sarah Wilcox
