Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Fun! I was given this book for my birthday when I was 3, shortly after it was first published, and it was an instant favourite! I have bought a copy for each of my nieces and nephews and my children have my copy. It's an absurdly delightful tale and always made me wish I had Lion with me. A hit with with every child I've read it to!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I recieved this book as a gift when I was a small child. Since I am now expecting my first child myself, I'm planning to order it when it's back in stock. This book gave me a wonderful sense of morbid delight, and is a well-written and fun poem. I recommend this and Where the Wild Things Are, for your little 'beast' !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful poem My 5-year-old friend and I bought this together at Xmas. He had it memorized in a couple of weeks - he loves the story and the wonderful rhythm and fun of the book. The illustrations are also great. The story has just the right touch of gruesomeness to appeal to a kid, too.
