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.
I ordered this from Amazon after my 2 year old chose it from our public library. He loved the book it seems, and was very happy a few weeks later when I gave him his own copy of it. The test of a good children's book I believe is whether a child wants to re-read and laughs (if appropriate for the story!) My son thinks this story is hilarious. The paperback copy has a lovely feel to it, rounded edges and quality paper. The illustration is unusual and interesting, the story itself doesn't have much to it but as I said my son laughs every time. This has made me look at what other stories this writer/illustrator combo has done
This book is beautiful and simple (in the best way). I bought it for my 3 year old based on the cover. He has autism and he is obsessed with triangles, they actually calm him down when he's overwhelmed and anxious (he carries triangular shapes around pretty much all the time). Anyway, he's literally spent the past two hours flicking through this book and I've had to read it to him about a dozen times too. The story is clever, the illustrations are just beautiful and simple and my son hasn't been this chilled out and happy in ages. Thanks!
Quirky. Delivered on time. Firm matt finish to pages. Great eye expressions on faces. Used with my nursery class when talking about shapes. They thought it was funny - the adults loved it too! Would be suitable for all who love picture books. Need to get the others in the series now!
I'm shocked by the venomous 1 star review of this book. My class of 30 5 year olds love it and have requested it again and again since we first read it. They laugh like drains each time. I haven't found anyone I know who doesn't like it yet.
