    " I THINK this is going to make a good first or second grade read aloud. I'm not positive the kids are going to get it. We'll see. "

    " Not the biggest fan of the sketch "Who's on First?" but I do like this book. The pictures really add to the story and help young readers realize what's going on. I love the rabbit's facial expressions! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 1/11/2014

    " Super cute retelling of the famous Abbott and Costello routine, done with speech bubbles for early readers' accessibility. Bright artwork adds to the appeal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Trenerowski | 12/29/2013

    " Loved how they turned this classic parody/comedy into a children's book. I loved how it made it simple and easy to follow and I can't wait to read this to my children one day! I thought they did a great job of making a confusing skit into a fun childrens book. Bravo! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 12/14/2013

    " I love the "Who's on First" routine, and I enjoyed the book's illustrations. I don't know if younger children will get the humor though, but it's nice that a classic routine is being passed down to another generation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisabeth | 12/10/2013

    " Perfect for a team read-aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 6/6/2013

    " I'm not sure how well this will go over with kids, but I appreciate he attempt and it is definitely well done. My kids were recently introduced to this classic comic sketch, so they appreciated it, but I don't know if they would have gotten it otherwise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 9/23/2012

    " Okay... so this is as confusing as the original skit! Funny characters who run through the famous Abbott and Costello baseball kit. It would be fun to act out! And maybe show some footage of the original skit to students. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 2/10/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 5/7/2011

    " I read this to my daughters and they loved it and laughed so hard especially my 6 year old. I then played the YouTube video of Abbott & Costello. So much fun! I might have to buy this book; we borrowed it from the library. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 4/19/2011

    " Based on the comedy routine by Abbott & Costello, the book shares the routine through a rabbit and bear character. It may take children a little while to understand the concept but once they do, they will appreciate the humor. This could even be acted out with groups of students in the classroom! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Arendt | 12/24/2010

    " I think you need to be an Abbot and Costello fan to appreciate this book. Fans of the routine will certainly enjoy it and reminisce about the good old days. "
