There is no book more deserving of the coveted boots.

This book is fresh, hilarious and clever. (And it comes with stickers! How cool is that?!)

A favorite in our house! You will hear my daughter walking around the house saying "Hello little mouse" and "Boom Boom Boom!". A funny and sweet book with wonderful illustrations!
