A lot of people in the children's book biz advise against writing rhyming picture books, not because they're against them per se, but because when they're bad they seem extra bad.

This book is full of cleverness - but the cleverness will be more appreciated by adults than children. That's not a bad thing, of course - I'm much more enthusiastic about reading a book to my grandkids that I, personally, also enjoy! But I'm thinking that this one is rather over their heads.

I like the idea of this book, but it goes on a bit too long. Even getting the kids to repeat things and asking them questions or having them guess the rhyming word that comes next, they still got fidgety well before the end.
