This was a cute book, full of bright colors, and an independent kid who just can't control his artistic impulses. So this story should have worked really well for us, but, well, it didn't.
My niece laughed at this book, but not nearly to the degree that I thought she would, and honestly, I think this book freaked my nephew out a little bit. I'm not sure if that's because the colors were so "in your face," or if it was because he can't stand being messy, so this book was like his worst nightmare.
I'm pretty sure most children would like this book. Sadly, the children in my life just really kind of didn't.
