" This is primarily a wordless book that lets the young ones narrate the story with their own words using the pictures as their guide. Its sweet and adorable. " said.

" It starts with mom dropping off her 3- or 4-year-old child at the zoo and LEAVING. And it goes downhill from there. " said.

"First of all, what is up with Goodreads listing the author as Laughing Elephant? Go home, Good Reads, you're drunk.

Man, did Alexandra Day phone this one in; except, she had to create all the art for this travesty so no? This series needs to find a graceful end somehow, please, for the sake of all of us who used to love it. This book was just horrible and quite sad.

Let's start with the child abuse on the first page where Mom drops Madeleine and Carl off at the zoo and LEAVES THEM. Ok, we have the whole series where we've established that Carl is the world's most awesome dog, but Mom was clueless about her super Rottie's abilities. Now Mom is complicit is abandoning her child? What's up with that? As someone who works with the public, let me tell you--STRONGLY--it is NEVER cool to leave your child alone in a public place.

NEVER.

It doesn't matter if it is a children's zoo or your local library or favorite store or anywhere. NEVER. Public places are full of the public, which should be a no brainer, but seriously isn't. We have people tell us they are just going to drop off their kids with us and they will be back in a few hours because they are going to go _______________.

NO. THIS IS NOT OK. Not in a picture book. NOT EVER.

Now, back to the book and back to pretend; the story was forced in this. Blech. I'm done with this. I don't want to waste any more time. It lacked the series' usual charm which for me is a sign that the series needs to end.
