To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My child is an Iggy Peck (though thankfully no stink diaper towers yet) , so I bought it since I felt she could really relate to it. And she (and I) liked it very much. Easy to ready, beautiful illustrations, enjoyable for kids (4-5yrs my child), straightforward plot. My child likes to look at the details in the illustrations and I think that is the main attraction of the book. The reason I gave 4 starts is, it is very expensive and for the cost I am not sure it is worth it.
So disappointed with this book, and Rosie Revere. I've had these in mind to buy for my nieces for several years and finally took the plunge for their 5th birthday. Had a quick flick through before giving these 2 as their presents and they weren't at all what I was expecting. Too American in style for them to understand. Whilst I love the sentiment behind these books, they weren't as well received as I'd hoped. Maybe 5 is too young? Maybe they'll grow to like them.
There's so much in this book that you can appreciate and draw out. Simple, fun story; detailed drawings; buildings and architecture; rhyming. It is a bit American at times and I'd probably not give it 5 stars. But it wasn't for me! Bought it for a friend's daughter, who loved it. Now her little brother (3) is insisting on having it every night. Definitely recommended.
