This book is such an emotional book. Every time I read it I cry a little. It reminds me of all the things what we will do in our lives. This is an extremely easy read. I teach some kids I work with to read Dr. Seuss books, because most of the words are sight words. ( )

I love this book; I believe it provides a powerful message to our children on how to advance and always work hard to successfully reach your goals. It mentions that you will find struggles, but it is ok and also part of the process to be successful. ( )

e auteur heeft ook hier weer een stevig absurd verhaal gecreëerd dat je meesleept doorheen zijn wondere wereld, waarin je van de ene verbazing in de andere valt.
Het vertelstandpunt vanuit het jongetje dwingt je tot kiezen en meeleven. Zo leidt dit boek ook tot reflecteren en vertalen naar je eigen, herkenbare wereld.
De tekst op rijm is doordacht geconstrueerd en leest vlot.
De fantasierijke woordenschat wekt verwondering op en dwingt respect af.
En doordat het hoogst absurde, quasi-nonsens-gehalte gelinkt blijft aan de herkenbare realiteit, verlies je nergens het spoor.
De fantasierijke prenten in ouderwets aandoende kleuren versterken de tekst en vice versa. Te gekke figuren met een grote beweeglijkheid en overduidelijke expressies loodsen je doorheen de absurde, eigengereide wereld van Dr. Seuss, waarin het goed vertoeven is.
This is a great inspirational story that gives children hope for the future. Great to use at the end of the year.
