Review: This was so hilarious and not at all what I expected it to be, the lumber baby won’t settle down to sleep and keeps causing a ruckus every night. The family want to sleep but he refuses everything they try.
I really enjoyed the hilarity of the story and the rhyming way it was written was so great. He destroys everything and nothing that worked on his big sister works for him. You see her observing everything and suddenly she knows what to do. What she came up with just continued the hilarity of the story to me.
This was so cute and really funny the illustrations were great and the thread of the story was enjoyable. I recommend if you are looking for a funny easy to read picture book that you give this a shot it made me laugh. It really wasn’t what I thought but was such a good read.
