    Great story and sounds but did not overly like the art.The messy crayon drawings are not my style but every one has different tastes, the words though is what makes this a great story that gets the kids going To give you an idea Has anyone seen my Chihuahua Your chi what what My chihuahua And so on, each animal she asks says a variation on how they think the word sounds which is what the kids loved.
