Book Review


Fred and Ed are under the complete control of the reader. This works out great for Ed, who gets a bike and a cowboy hat. Fred, on the other hand, walks into a tree and gets a chicken suit. Then Fred decides to stop playing along, and he and the reader struggle for control. When Fred won't jump as he's told to, he is transported into a jungle with hungry tigers (still in his chicken suit). Fred leaves the book until the reader promises no more tigers or chickens suits. So he comes back...and gets to wear funny underpants instead.
