I wanted to like this book - I really did. The illustrations were vibrant, interesting, and unique, as well as presenting a diverse and multi-cultural world.
Unfortunately, that is where the appeal ended. One-up-manship, a negative focus on competition, and verbally sparring by putting someone else down are all too common in our culture. My three boys manage to find plenty of ways to get into it with each other all on their own without extra inspiration.
Children's Book Review Rating: 1 Star - Bad Book
