One Star Review Guess Who (#6)
Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on GoodReads or Amazon?
There is NO PLOT. And I don’t mean that there’s a very simple plot, as would suit a children’s book, but there is ABSOLUTELY NO PLOT! There are no characters. There is no story. It’s just a collection of ugly 1960s cartoons about dogs, with accompanying sentences. And the worst part is that my little brother loves it and makes me read it to him all the time. WHY?!?!?!?! I wouldn’t at all mind if he wanted me to read something like Oh, the Places You’ll Go! or Where the Wild Things Are. But no, it’s this.
