Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book Our toddler LOVES this book. It is one of his favourites. We had an old copy that was falling apart, so I'm buying a new one since he loves it so much

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor poetry, story-line not up 'Seuss' standards The cadence of the poetry in this book is very poor. There are several stanzas that you just trip over, particularly if reading aloud to a toddler. It does not flow well, the story seems to go on forever, with little to hold the interest of either the reader or audience. It was not an enjoyable book to have read.
