My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is by far one of my favorite books. I just re-read it again this weekend. I can't really tell you why I like it so much, but I keep coming back to read it again. One of the things I do really like about the book is the development of Rolf's English. Maggie Shayne did a good job of showing his progression of learning from simple phrases to longer sentences and from broken English to pretty near perfect.

Having just re-read this book this past weekend I noticed a few things about my copy. I think it might be time to replace my much loved book. This book wasn't new when I bought it like 8 years ago, but it really has been beaten up since it's come into my possession.
Here is what my copy looks like:
The cover is starting to rip off, so the pages are all staring to rip out from this point on. As I turned the first ten pages I think it got worse
When Ellie (mom's pug) was teething she chewed anything she could get at, from the looks of this corner, she got at this book.
I've put in an order on Paperback Swap for a new copy. I'll hold onto this one until it dies...I can't get rid of it yet.
