|too much fun|
My opinion: Talk about ridiculous fun. Like all the best absurd books it recognizes its absurdity and embraces that role. It is playful and exciting without a real sense of peril, making this an excellent read aloud for even young kids. Older readers will appreciate the author asides, things like a parrot that gets tossed off of one page only to land some forty pages later. And it has really fun place names - like the Big, Scary, Very Dark, Dense Forest Where No One In Their Right Mind Would Want To Go.
