I am a grade 1 teacher and my students love this book. It is easy to read and highly entertaining. I have now signed out all of this author's other books.

Grade 1 approved!

Easy fun book for early phonetic readers. My first grader enjoyed having a real book to work thru, with each chapter focused on a short vowel. Illustrations and story line were humorous enough that her 5th grade sister didn't mind listening to her read.
