Had this book for a while now, my kids are age 4 years and 19 months, they love it at bedtime and i have read it to them so many tmes i know if off the top of my head!! It captures their attention and its clever plat ond rhyme is great. I would reccomend this book as a fun book but also good at bedtimes (even more fun if u make up the voices for all the creatures that appear as mouse makes his way through the deep dark wood!) I challenge anyone to be disapointed with this book. BRILLIANT!!
