Both my children and I enjoyed reading this book. My oldest daughter requested this book four times in six days. It is a real winner. They adored the pictures and lovable Big Ugly. The story is well written and thought out and all the illustrations match the text beautifully. If you want a book that both children and adults can appreciate grab Big Ugly today.
