Read this as a child and loved it... read it as an adult and loved it even more. Wonderful wordplay. I recommend it to every young reader and have shared my copy with many of them.

An extremely clever children's novel. Juster creates a world that is intelligent, imaginative, puzzling and educational all at the same time. His characters buzz with life and lessons. A wonderf way to turn a boring day around.
