Great idea, not so great in content...
am 12. April 2000
I'm relieved that my son brought this home from the library before it had occured to me to purchase it. I sat there with my children (6 and 4) and started to read from , what promised to be, an entertaining Dr. Suess book.... until there I was TONGUE TIED halfway through... when someone declares BLACK MAGIC to be in operation. Now. Some people, I realise may not have a problem with that (I for one thought the story was great so far, and continued it a few pages later to find the ending delightful) but those christian parents out there, considering purchasing this book for their new readers to read ALONE, beware. Froma christian perspective, this was a terrible book.. a slip in the wrong direction... as for everything else... great picture, fun story idea, my son laughed a lot, and my daughter was entranced.... just skip a few pages, better yet, buy the book, rip out the offensive pages, and VOILA...a great tale of a funny adventure! IMHO.
