I liked this book.
I liked this book because it’s got good words. Words like, enigma, ingenious and Whiraffe.
I liked this book because it’s clever. Once you get around “U” some of the seemingly unrelated short stories, aren’t.
I liked this book because it’s humor is a little dark. It’s terrible that the girl who lived in half a house on a cliff over the sea woke up on the wrong side of bed and fell in, but I laughed anyway.
But mostly I liked this book because sometimes the adults should get to read aloud an alphabet book they enjoy, even if the kids* don’t think it’s as humorous as they do.
Would I recommend it? Yes. Unless you only like to read your children books that are full of rainbows, unicorns, sunshine, small words and happy endings – if that’s the case you should definitely read it because you are missing out on a whole world of fantastic children’s literature!
*Jane (3) and Clara (5) didn’t get the humor but Ivy (8) did!
