I read this with my almost 7yo who enjoyed the story though I am not sure he understood the silliness, though I tried to explain. I quite enjoyed it though :)

A very silly story. It can be silly in a fun way if readers understand the silliness and don't take Avon and Edward's perspective on things too seriously.

okay this book was my favorite book when i was like ten. It is really short and looking back kind of stupid but i could read it about seven times in one day back then. I would recommend it if you would like something to just read on the way to bellingham or something. A good read. hahaha every time i read it I always laugh at myself for loving something so simple.


have a perfect washington weather day.
