I really liked the concept of this book as I am a big fan of word play, and thus is why I chose the book to read. I enjoyed the bright colors used in the illustrations, which were drawn with pastels, as well as the different species that were the characters in the book. I found the plot to start out strong with a clear story but as it continued I found it to be unnecessarily long and continued not to advance the plot but instead to fit in more homonyms and homophones. I do, however, believe children would find this book entertaining and would have fun pointing out the different homonyms and homophones within the story and be inspired to create a story of the same sort. So, as an educational tool to a young audience I would recommend this book but if you are looking at plot or are looking for a good read-aloud/along book I would recommend a different tale.
