My 4 year-old loves this and has even requested that I read it multiple times in one evening. (This is very unusual for her. Usually when she loves a book, she just has me read it one time per evening, night after night after night after etc. But with Larvae, she wanted immediate re-readings.) The text is probably geared toward a slightly older child, but I just drop a sentence here or there to shorten it to a preschooler's attention span and she adores it. Great humor and very amusing illustrations.
