Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book for kids of all ages. We love the Elephant and Piggie books, as well as Pigeon and Knuffle Bunny (1), so when I spied this title, I knew it was going home with us. The story had my kids going to the end, and, as we are silent movie watchers, the presentation is fantastic (it will make sense when you read the book). I am recommending this book to everyone I know, as this one is a winner.
