Our customer reviews

Francine In defense of this book it was written in 1963 so things were a bit different back then. If anything, this book has become somewhat of a collectors item and one that's been around for a couple generations. I remember borrowing this book 30 years ago from my kindergarten library so I would want my kids to have and read their copy sitting on their bookshelf.show more

Am I the only person in the world who doesn't love this book? I find it difficult to read (so little text) and not terribly good at provoking my kids imaginations. The pictures are interesting... first time around... but little to talk about after a few reads. I am very disappointed with this book, but from other reviews I know that many people love it.show more
