Most Helpful Customer Reviews
4 year old Peter Max the Engineer checked this book out of the library, insisted that it be read to him every day, several times a day. When the day came for the book to go back to the library, we set it on the table, ready to go return it and check out another. But it mysteriously disappeared. It seems Peter Max had objected to returning the beloved book, for we found it tucked safely under his pillow, guarded by his favorite stuffed doggy.
