I read this book and completed the activities with children at a local school and book store last year. The other day thanks to this post I did the same thing with a friend child and am planning on going into a local school to read the book next month 🙂 it's great for me because the kids love it and it's a lot of fun. It's great for them because it's a funny English girl reading a silly English book in an Italian classroom or just at home for fun! Thanks for reminding me to slow and and be childish for a while!!
