I read this while reading aloud to my nephew. I may also have read it as a child or had it read to me, but cannot recall. Reading it aloud was interesting. It was easy to get my tongue twisted as I tried to read the text. ( )

My son borrowed this book from his school library every week until I finally bought him a copy so that he would read other books. He loved all the verbal play and tongue twisters said fast. My daughter, I later discovered, truly disliked the story and how mean the fox was to Mr. Knox. I like all the word play and how much you can do with just a few words; and (spoiler?) Mr. Knox seems to win out in the end. ( )

This was certainly tough to read and at some parts a little dull, but I must say I rather enjoyed reading the poodle puddle twister part, that was quite fun ( )

Seriously, miserable rhymes for an adult to read to a child. ( )

A tounge twister if I ever read one, but lots of fun. ( )

As we mouth his refusals, we ourselves conform: we, readers of books aloud, have pronounced exactly the tongue-tying utterance that Knox declares himself unable, or unwilling, to say.
