My 5th grader was reading this book and pointed out that on page 62, the kid named Dave in the story tells a story about a guy who fell asleep and was dreaming of 2 naked ladies kissing him and woke up to find out that rats were eating his face. On page 63 is a drawing of the supposed guy dreaming with rats at his face and a dream bubble coming up from his head with a drawing of the dream.. There are no private body parts showing- just the 2 women's bare backs. Regardless, I personally find this story and image to be extremely inappropriate for my child.

Any book that doesn't hold my attention to the end gets rated a half star. Kids may love this; it just wasn't something I wanted to invest my precious time in. Very repetitive in the first few pages (I stopped at page 16) and I found myself getting irritated by it and pulled the next book off my to-read mountain. Sorry Tom, I won't be reading more of your kid books.
