" The illustrations are fun, but I was disturbed by the premise for the book--a rat and a dog trying to decide what to do with the carcass of their dead neighbor. " said.

" I wouldn't use it for storytime, but I think adults might find it funny. " said.

" I don't know what say, really. I think it is interesting, and possibly great, but not really great for children. " said.

" Hmm. I am not quite sure what to think. I really liked the illustrations. The story is both tender and perplexing. Two friends find a smooshed acquaintance on the street. They handle the flattened deceased with tenderness and respect, then decide on a plan of action that is far from traditional. The end will leave readers wondering "What?" " said.

" Um....I have a sick and twisted sense of humor. I do. There are moments here. But over all this isn't one to share with a sensitive child. I don't think it's a great "death and dying book" to share. I don't think a final solution for a dead loved one or even a causal acquaintance is to tape them up to a kite and let them float. A little too macabre there. Again, you can probably read irreverent humor or sad compassion or whatever. I was just disturbed. " said.

" This... ...just... What? When I finished reading this to my 6-year-old, he said, "What? That's the end?" And then didn't believe me and read it himself to make sure I hadn't left anything out. Maybe something was lost in translation, but I'm not sure if this is supposed to be darkly humorous or an existential contemplation of death. I think that kids young enough to read picture books aren't going to get it, and kids old enough to get this don't usually read picture books. " said.

" This book is all kinds of messed up " said.

" This book was super weird and I think I missed the point. " said.
