A story about a boy who wouldn't share, but who is taught a lesson in sharing by his sister. I love the lyrical wording in this book. It flows so nicely and even without the illustrations would be enjoyable to read. I also like the ending where Edward gets stuck underneath his pile of horded up toys so he misses out on the fudge. It's kind of like a lesson in karma. Boys who are nasty get nasty consequences. Then Edward APOLOGIZES to his sister for his bad attitude (go Edward!) and the consequences turn around. He gets fudge and a playmate.

The illustration style is very squiggly at times, for want of a better word, so it is not my favorite. But it is creative and humorous which is great fun for the kiddos. I would recommend this book for school aged children as I don't think the little ones would understand the nuances at play in the story.
