This is one of my favorite books to read with the students when they come to my library. They love the story of the animals surviving a horrible crash and escaping a terrible boss. The story is written in a beautiful cadence, which helps kids learn the sound and rhythm of reading aloud. The pictures are vivid and beautiful. The kids love to find the animals on the page when they are hiding from Mr. Paine.
This book is a great addition in the school library (where I work) as well as a kid's home library.
