I liked the structure, illustration, and creative die-cut pages. Each plot point has a small analog clock face, a nice addition for early readers who want to practice time-telling. I didn't love that the point seems to be, if you are grouchy, someone will slap you. Or conversely, if someone is grouchy with you, slap them; they will automatically turn contrite and humble. But your (or your kid's) mileage may vary!
