Bill Peet is one of my favorite kids book authors. I read these as a kid, got them for my kids, nieces and nephews and have put away a set for for my grandchildren someday. The stories and characters are always well designed and draw kids in. The illustrations are bright and colorful while still being somewhat simplistic giving them a lovable cartoon appearance. The stories have great moral and life lessons told in a fun way. These stories have stood the test of time and have been loved by many in my family

My husband and I read Bill Peet books to our kids when they were young...probably around ages 3-7. The stories are intriguing (for kids and for the adult reading the book), and the pictures are fun to look at. I’ve bought many of these books to give as gifts, and I’m buying some to have for our own personal collection.

I think this is too scary for toddlers. Even though the main character is sensitive and kind, the book has a lot of negative and violent language. Better for older school age kids. Typical Bill Peet

Bought this book for my grandson, age 7, and even my granddaughter, age 4, loved this story! We read it 3 nights in a row at bedtime! Highly recommend this book and Cowardly Clyde by Bill Pete. Will surely buy more of his books!

Love this book! I read the library copy to first and second graders when I was subbing, so I had to get my own! Think it would be enjoyed by all ages of grade school children!
