review 1: This is quite the strange, subversive little picture book. I'm not really sure whether I love it or hate it so I'll just give it the benefit of the doubt and give it four stars. This is one of those books that needs to be read to a group of kids to determine how I really feel about it. This book reminds me of Cecil the Pet Glacier in that methinks the author is a tad (or a whole lot) eccentric.
review 2: Strange strange strange!!! But, I liked it. Sometimes it takes a while to get used to someone new. At first, Teddy couldn't stand Irv. Irv touched his things without asking, breathed to loud at night, and listened to terrible music. But, after a while, Teddy decided he liked Irv and really didn't want him to leave when it came time for Irv to go back to Mars. I
... more loved this line from the book. "You know, if you only see what you don't like about someone, you never see what you do like about them." less

Odd book, but I did like its overall message - accepting things is the only way to be happy.
This might be a nice book for that more introverted kiddo.
Odd but entertaining.
