I recognize that long-form novels and non-fiction interviews win Pulitzer Prizes. I’m not sure if children’s books could win such a prestigious award, but they should. This is one of those books. It’s so well written. Absolutely captivating. Easily the easiest book to read to your child. 11 out of 10, would recommend. Hat tip to Bradley Chambers for the recommendation.

I’m not willing to do this, of course, but if working 40 hours a week gives me an advantage over the rest of the working world, I’ll take it.
