There is so much going on in this book that no matter how many times we read it to my son, he never gets tired of it. The size of this book is humongous and the story is catchy. Each frame has loads and loads of items in it which makes looking at each frame time consuming and lots of fun. There is small mini game "search the goldbug" on each frame which is fun. You can just look at the detailed pictures of each frame and enjoy this book. The story is definitely an extra.
