So cute! This story is absolutely adorable. It’s funny and zany, but there is also a very strong message in the story. I read this with my 8 and 5 year old boys and they loved it. I’ll admit I kinda used this to my advantage to get my 8 year old to stop eating gum like it’s candy. I told him if he didn’t stop he’d be tooting a bubble lol.The more important message is of course to not lie and try to do what’s right even when it’s tempting to do what’s wrong. The illustrations in the book are amazing. Very crisp and colorful. I would tell all my parent friends to check this book out for their kids around this age. A big 5/5!
