Another satisfying domestic drama from veteran author Hughes, this will please old fans and make new ones.
It’s a simple story, written cleanly and clearly. Surrounded by ample white space, the artwork is big, bright, and cheery.

Children will enjoy the action and details in the vibrant gouache artwork, which makes effective use of layered and textured colors. Fine-tuned to young children’s sensibilities, this picture book reads aloud very well.
