What I Like: Everything! This is such a fun book. The vibrant illustrations are irresistible. The text always sends my kids into giggles. They love talking about who will be lunch today and who will receive a merciful pardon.
What I Dislike: Nothing. At first, I was a little put-off by the morbid nature of the tale, but quickly learned to love it and its wonderful message.
Overall Rating: Excellent!
Age Appeal: 3-8 ... my 18-month-old loves the pictures, but the concepts are little advanced for him just yet.
