My five-year-old son spotted this Little Golden Book in a rack during a recent trip to World Market. He loves the Sendak Little Bear and Little Golden Books. This book seemed like a good choice for him.
The story is cute, but it is the artwork by Richard Scarry that carries this book. The setting is reminiscent of Sendak's illustrations in the Little Bear book, and the Sendak-based drawings for the LIttle Bear series.
All in all, it is a great bedtime story for kids who still have bedtime stories read to them.
