    Amazing book. 5 out of 5 stars. Great idea about books inside books. Rich pictures and great colors. Vivid story. A must for all 5-7 year-olds.

    This book is extremely good because at the beginning, the is a sentence about a book which had another story and kept on going and on.

    The other reason why I like this book is because it has a really good story line.

    This allows me to give this book a 5 out of 5!
