If ever there was a kid-friendly book, this is it. I mean look, there is a cartoon bird on the cover! Second, it’s set in New Orleans – the most kid-friendly of cities. The main character, Ignatius J. Reilly, is a lovable lunk and his language is always appropriate. I can’t think of a better read-out-loud book for bedtime. Surely any child will dream of candy and rainbows after every encounter with Ignatius.
