I liked this book because I like the way the background in the pictures copies the way the people are feeling. This book is unusual because the author made the illustrations so important to the story. In order to really understand the book, you have to look closely at all the illustrations.
I think the Anthony Browne is a great artist and his work is very different from others I've seen. My favorite character in the book book is the mom. She is supposed to be a person, but she is drawn as a gorilla in an army hat. She is strict, and when she yells, she has a huge mouth. The mom in the book reminds me of my cousin because she is really crabby. She is really bossy, and acts like a queen.
I would recommend this book to kids of all ages - even grownup kids, because everyone has a different point of view in the story and that makes it interesting. You will love this book.
