    One thought on “The Tall Man and the Twelve Babies”

    1. A very bizarre book that leaves a smile on your face sort-of. It's about a tall man who lives in apartment with 12 babies, 6 boys who are all called Alistair and 6 girls who are all called Charlene. The tall man gets stuck half-way in his front door's doggy flap with the Alistairs inside and the Charlenes outside; they think it's hilarious. So they push and pull. They're cute. But it's bizarre.I suppose it's the kind of tale you tell when kids ask for a story and you sprout something crazy just [...]

    2. Kind of a strange story (why do all the kids have the same name?), but Bede enjoyed the cadence of the language and the brightly colored illustrations. A bit long for him.

    3. One 12 baby was missing and there was only 11 and the little girls were named one name and the little boys were named another name. The boys have a shirt the same and the girls have a shirt the same too.

    4. My 5 year old loves this book, it is cute and quirky. She never gets tired of it and I don't mind it either. The illustrations are wonderful.
