    Noelle: I want the cat book.Me: The Cat in the Hat?Noelle: No! Wuggie the Norple!Me: Are you sure? We have lots of other books...Noelle: WUGGIE NORPLE!!!!Me: OK, Wuggie Norple.Noelle: And we read it three times because I three years old.My wife's response:This book is torture. It's like when you're being tickled and you laugh even though you hate it. I hate this book.My response:This book is shrouded in mystery. Few have read it, and they come back with eyes glazed, marveling at the rare joy they have experienced. But what is it? It is pure silliness. This book will not teach you profound life lessons; it will make you laugh. The proper way to read this book is out loud to a small child. When I read the first three pages to myself, I didn't think much of it. Then, a small child crawled into my lap and asked to hear the story. Within moments, we were both guffawing with laughter. The names of the characters are so silly that you will find yourself repeating them and chuckling for days. Or, if you are a small child, yelling them in enclosed spaces and falling to the floor in laughter.

    Lovely, charming, irresistible family, in which the father goes to work, the mother cooks, and the little boy breaks rocks. Then one day there comes into their lives an orange kitten. This is a wonderful, adorable, cuddly book, and everyone has the best names. One year I arm-wrestled the new principal at my kid's elementary school into permitting a Read-Across-America Day event, and I dressed up as the mother, read this book to a few classrooms full of tiny children, and later tried to read it to a class of college students. Hah!

    My favorite children's book of all time. I read this so many times that my kids had it memorized but still enjoyed the silly names. I used to read this story when I was a substitute teacher and it held the students attention because they were waiting for the next creative animal name. The book is out of print and hard to find but I have managed to buy a copy for each of my sons to read to their kids.

    This is hands down my favorite children's book of all time. As far as I know, it's still out of print, so I'm not letting my one-year-old anywhere near my dear copy of it for quite a while, but I look forward to the day when he can appreciate its weirdness. We discovered it when my brothers were little, and I have many fond memories of laughing with them over the silly names and pictures. If you can get your hands on a copy, jump on it!

    My friend Rebecca added a Daniel Pinkwater book to her to-read list. I don't believe I've ever heard of Pinkwater, so I did a search to see what else he's written. This particular volume has only been reviewed by 39 people, but gets a 4.82 average rating, and several reviewers tout it as their favorite children's book. I'm intrigued.

    This book is hysterical and full of fun nonsense. I think, perhaps, that Daniel Pinkwater was just standing in his kitchen, closing his eyes, and pointing at stuff when he made up the names for the characters in this story. Love it.

    Don't know how I missed this one (Pinkwater is my favorite author) but I had never read it before. I found a free audiobook download of this and grabbed it. Loved the story and the great Pinkwater character names.

    Super complicated! Another book that grown ups like and kids will think is too hard or weird or difficult. Happy Tomie people and a silly story about family

    How is it that I haven't read this book until now? Hilarious story about a man who brings home a cat. The names of the characters alone are worth the read.

    My mom read this when she was a kid and made her mom track down a discarded library copy so I could have my very own. Strange and fun, with great ideas for pet names.

    If you are an adult this will probably only entertain you once, and for about 5 minutes, but it is amusing.
