My Thoughts:
Strange but humorous little book. Written out like a children's picture book, it's pretty absurd. I am not sure how I feel about it really. Yes, it was funny in some places, but also a little frightening to think about in others. I think for fact that a kid could mistake this for a children's book, and that could be confusing.
About the Author: Cevin Soling has written a number of books in the Rumpleville Chronicles, including The Jolly Elf and The Disciples of Trotsky. There will be at least 7 more books in the series.

Hmm - so this is NOT a children's book? I am confused too. The title didn't sound very kid friendly but the picture sure did.

I think it should be fine, b/c in won't be in a kid's section and the title would make parents aware it's nota kids' book. It sounds crazy, but humorous in that weird way.

Reminds me of the other picture book called Cherise the Niece, that's not a children's book, but looks funny...haven't read it yet though, but i want too.
