Would you recommend this book to a friend?
Yes. I just thought it was a really good book, and they should read it. The characters are funny, and they speak like humans. The toad pretends he was a washing woman. He acted different and funny. I like the rat. He was nice to his friends.
Do you think it is important for kids to read?
Yes, because when kids read, they get smarter.
