you call this a children's book??????????
Whatever happened to QUALITY books like "Phantom Tollbooth", that have adventure without profanity? Apparently the author of this book has no clue about traditional family values, and doesn't care what his children (or any children for that matter) grow up to be like. Dude, we ALL live in the "real world" but that doesn't mean we have to succumb to trash like this that teaches children language that they're NOT supposed to know. Personally, I wouldn't even read this crap to my dog. (if I had one) That means I would have to read it, and hear myself speaking that way, which I don't want.
