But a rule of caution for parents -
This book works only if you are able to read it with all expressions and funny voices.
A plain text read may not appeal to your child, and you may feel that you lost money at this purchase.
buy it only if you know you will be able to do justice to the book as there aren't any pictures to keep children hooked.
It only depends on parents/ other grownups to make it interesting.
For those who are able to make it interesting, it really is worth every penny spent.
From saying 'I am a monkey who taught myself to read' to singing 'Glug Glug Glug, my face is a bug, I eat ants for breakfast right off the rug', this book actually makes GROWN-UPS say silly things. Read sentences in SILLY way/voice and see your kids have a hearty laugh at your expense.
Everytime, the sentence comes 'Can I stop reading it yet', my 3-year-old pint-sized toddler says 'NO'.
Best is saved for the last when you read 'THE END- BONK, I DID NOT WANT TO SAY THAT'. My kid says 'READ IT AGAIN'.
It turned out to be a hit with my 5 year old though. He absolutely loves when i read it to him. And what more, he has started reading this book himself. Before this book, he has never showed inclination to 'read', (which is fair, he is only 5) and preferred to just look at pictures. This book changed that. Everyday, he has been reading this book to everyone in the family and laughs uncontrollably at the silly things in the book.
I still think it is quite expensive though.
My bub is 5 years old.. And he always chooses this book over hundreds of his other books! He loves it so much and finds it so funny.. He loves the lines and keeps on repeating it while we read it for him.. He has mugged them all! And the best thing is, it makes him laugh for the entire duration of its narration, from the start till the end!
Here is my 2 cents:
me and my 5 yr old thoroughly enjoy reading this… CAUTION you may sound utterly funny … silly .. completely ridiculous…. However it’s worth it with ur kid…

By the end of the second reading my son declared it "the funniest book ever" and he has a lot of books and has read and been read to a lot.
Buy it, you won't regret it and by the end you too will probably be crying with laughter.
My child is aged 7 years.
Got it for my 6.5 year old and he literally wet himself laughing. I appreciate this may not be the ideal outcome most people want but to me this fact alone says buy it. I have read it to him three times already since he opened it 10 minutes ago, and he is now reading it to himself :-) One happy boy.
