Mike I Don't Like

Once in a while a book comes along that changes your life. This is not that book.

I made the mistake of reading this so called childrens picture book largely because of the subject matter - me... The authors have taken one or two factual statements and concocted a fanciful tale, in rhyme I might add, about yours truly.  The authors claim that I dislike all kinds of things including (but not limited to): blue whales, baths, showers, itchy scabs, pickles, the smell of kangaroos, cheese, vampire bats, barn owls, and even the well-known and quite piratical expression ahh me hearties!!  This is all quite true of course, but I would never use rhyme.  Never ever.  Whoops.  That wasnt meant to rhyme.  My beef isn't only with these semi-literate word monkeys Kate & Jol Temple.  Ive got a MAJOR problem with that texta-wielding goon Jon Foye.  Whats with those illustrations?  A five year old could draw better than him.  (Mike I Don't Like, aged 5)

Of course, we asked our adult friend, Mike McLeish, to read this silly book for us!  I wonder if he likes it?
