What a fun and encouraging story to share with your children. My daughter and I read this story together and we both found it to be very entertaining. I thought the illustrations were great and my daughter especially liked the pictures of Ziggersnout. As a parent I am always looking for books that will teach valuable lessons to my children and this is one I will gladly add to our collection. The story teaches children that to succeed we need faith and hope in ourselves. The boy's belief in the Ziggersnout was a great way to expand our imagination and teach children to reach for their goals.
