For some reason, this books seems to resonate within the heart of every child who reads it, or to whom it is read. I read this to Abby a few days ago, and she loved it so much that now she sits on the couch and reads it herself, but with a few modifications. She couldn't remember it word for word, so she added her own sad commentary:
"My batteries ran out... I had to eat a crusty pear...he wasn't my best friend..."
It was so funny I wish I could have gotten it on tape!
I think we are going to have to buy that book.
