4/8/2011 Kerry McCaskill said: The illustrations are amazing. This is a book that really makes a long-lasting impression on the kids who read it. Some adore it but it terrifies others. Either way, they never forget it. The imagery is that strong... I only wish the writing had been a little more playful.
