DisappointedReviewed in India on July 10, 2021
Cute story and illustration. But the book came in pretty bad condition. It looked like a used one.
Awesome Book!Reviewed in the United States on June 16, 2021
This book is an absolute delight to read. We purchased this book for my soon 10 years ago when he was 4 years old and read it to him almost every night, then one day he started reading it all by himself out load. My husband couldn't believe it. Now 10 years later with a 10 month old and 8 months pregnant, I just had to buy it again. My family and I love this book.

Cute book... don't love the commentaryReviewed in the United States on January 7, 2019
We love this book so much that we bought a second copy as it tells the story with pictures. However, I don't love the commentary in this version where it's giving instructions for how to discuss it. I suppose it could be helpful, but for a kiddo that's always curious about "what does this say", it took away from the fun of the story for me.

) can't find her favorite book! SoReviewed in the United States on May 7, 2015
This is a cute, clever picture book. The main character (who I think is a cat?) can't find her favorite book! So, she imagines all sorts of terrible things - a dinosaur stomping it or a bear eating it. When she finds it again, her rejoicing is hilarious. This is a perfect book to read young kids (5 and below). A few pages with no words give a perfect opportunity for young imaginations to narrate. The illustrations are well-done, simple and yet, sophisticated. I got a few chuckles from this book and will hold it ready should I have kids. Highly recommend!

Simple and fun readingReviewed in the United States on March 24, 2021
This cute little picture book was a hit with my granddaughter, age 2. She quickly picked up on the story and wanted to read it herself!
