Read this to my little niece and nephew a few years ago and they both loved it, especially the darkly humorous twist at the end. Wonderfully illustrated, not to mention educational too.
I think that this is my favorite picture book to read aloud! Hysterical!
Great cynical read aloud for valentines day.
Ah, one of the best picturebooks ever. I read it aloud in my masters level courses each time I get a new cohort. I laugh at the end, and they find it disturbing--disequilibrium!
