What a fun book for young readers! The illustrations and the story itself was so funny. Young readers can identify the characters, problem, climax, and solution, but some of the vocabulary may be a little difficult for young or beginning readers. However, this book should definitely be read at the elementary level. I can hear the laughter in the classroom now!
