Really, really good. One of the few books my son asked to read again and again. He liked the calligraphic writing and the liitle puzzles along the way. I enjoyed reading it too and appreciated the obvious care which went into writing it. We're looking forward to the next one.
A delightful book - clever and funny and with a moral story. The drawings are beautiful. can't wait for the next one
