This one is really fun. A great lesson in superlatives that will also make you laugh out loud. I love the illustrations with the little jokes based on the pets in the background. I had fun doing different voices with this one as I read it aloud to the littles. It's great to find light-hearted books that just make you laugh!
Dear husband finished reading this one to the littles (7 yog and 8 yob) last night. They loved it! I haven't read any of them but everybody I respect loves Tolkien. Except for me. I just can't read books where I can't pronounce the character names easily. But I wholeheartedly support these books because it seems like he was a great guy, a great influence on his buddy C.S. Lewis, and a good Christian and put Christian symbolism in his books. So go for it if you like his books!
