The concept is great, and, obviously, it's by Vonnegut so the writing is amazing. While the subject matter is definitely a departure from his adult works, the writing style is immediately recognizable as Vonnegut's. I loved that the style is so consistent with who he is as an author, despite the fact that he's writing for a younger audience.
This is definitely one that I'm going to be on the lookout for to purchase to read to my favorite boy and girl this Christmas. From what I can tell, it's still very difficult to find in print, but has been re-released as a Kindle book and is available for a very reasonable price.
I also managed to find this link to a YouTube video of Vonnegut reading the book himself that is definitely worth checking out.
Thanks to Edelweiss for providing me with a copy to review.
