    1. I spotted this little picture book at Library #3 and decided to read it as I couldn't take more books with me (already had the max amount of 12).And I am quite glad that I didn't pick this book to come with me. A character like that, an ending like this. I was hoping for a lesson to be learned, I was hoping for the MC to see the light, but I guess that just wasn't in the planning.Everyone of us has laughed once or more times at other people's misery, or mishaps, but we are not like this main cha [...]

    2. Alfie is kind of a jerk, but just when you think he's going to learn not to laugh at other people's misery - instead the reader is encouraged to laugh at Alfie's misery? Lovely art, but not great in the end.

    3. "One of my favourite stylish modern kids' books" says the Drawn blogger.I OhioLINKed this book after seeing it on the blog. It wasn't quite as great as I'd wanted it to be, but it's still fun if you like books with lots of little visual jokes (look for what the mouse, Mr. Swiss, is doing on each page). The visual style is very cartoon-retro and design-y, with interesting color choices.I wasn't too impressed with the story (a little boy who laughs at others when they fall or have misfortune), unt [...]

    4. I was not very impressed with this book. I suppose it's for an older child, as some of the so-called humor is beyond the toddlers and preschoolers. I wasn't a fan of the illustration style. And I guess I knew there was going to be some kind of moral coming, but the ending was a bit of an "uhhh" that I wasn't sure if the moral was supposed to come off facetiously or seriously. Not a book for my tastes, but I'm sure there are others who will love it.

    5. Again another children's books in which i really enjoyed the illustrations. The basic outline of the story is a little boy who finds humour in bad things happening to other people and in the end gets his comuppance. My boys enjoyed it and hey a book that teaches them the word, schandefreude is a-ok to me.

    6. Just didn't feel like much of a story. I like the moralabout not laughing at other's misfortunes, but it didn't feel executed well at all. And I don't think kids will get it, but it can open the door for a child and adult to discuss this situation.

    7. A bit confusing of a social story, but this book shows students how it feels to be laughed at. Some students struggle with empathy. This book is not appropriate for all students, but for some who are confused, this book may clarify.Weird and short story line, but gets the point across.

    8. It seems to be a common condition in little one's around 5 (mine included)- though I doubt many of them know the word Schadenfreudeis book could change that!
