This was a HUGE hit in my house. Across the board.
Mister enjoyed it, Boo LOVED it, I found it hilarious.
When Dad leaves for milk and takes forever to come home, he needs a good story to explain the lengthy absence. The result is part Hitchhiker's Guide and part... craziness, lol. But fortunately, the milk. :)
Boo is THRILLED that it's the first book up when Great Reads for Girls resumes at our library in September. (And since it features a dad, dads are invited. Which works nicely with the whole "new baby" thing in our house.)
I think we probably need to own this one. It's definitely that good.
HIGHLY recommended for ages 4-ish on up through great-great-grandparents. If you're starting to think about Christmas book-giving, this one could work for almost anyone on your list. :)
